October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month!
Marty is an adoptable young Yorkie in NY, NY! Visit his link on Petfinder.com to find out more about him.
It's our favorite time of year! Not only is October so much fun because we get to celebrate Dogtober with costume themes for dressing pets, but October is also Adopt a Shelter Pet month!
The obvious answer is to adopt a shelter dog! Many rescues offer adoption specials during the month of October to make adopting a pet more affordable. Consider making a donation to your shelter with your savings, which could also be a tax deduction. Encourage your friends and family to adopt instead of shop, because there are several adorable dogs just waiting for their furever home! You can find virtually any breed that you might otherwise shop for. For instance...
Max is a 3-year-old Maltese in Sherman Oaks, CA. Visit Petfinder.com to adopt him.
There are several things you can do to help homeless animals if you're not able to adopt.
