October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

What Can An Adopted Dog Bring To Your Life?

There are as many responses to that question as there are dogs in this world! That’s why — during American Humane Association’s Adopt-A-Dog Month celebration in October — we’re encouraging people to adopt a shelter dog and experience the joy of finding their own answers.

Are you looking for:

An exercise buddy?
 A best friend and confidant for your child?
A dog you can train with to learn animal-assisted therapy? 
A partner in agility competitions?
 A constant companion for your favorite senior citizen?
 A fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work?

An adopted dog can be all these things — and so much more!

Your local shelter is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality — all waiting for a loving home. Or, if you prefer a particular breed that isn’t currently available at a shelter, go online to find a breed-specific rescue group in need of adopters like you.
