Goal: 45,000 Progress: 21,963
Sponsored by: The Animal Rescue Site

Rescue dogs make a great pet any time of year, but during each October shelters and animal lovers observe Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, a month-long endeavor to celebrate shelter dogs and promote adoption. What better time than now to march down to your local shelter and take home a canine in need? A new dog can greatly improve your life by:

  • helping you get outside and exercise
  • providing companionship for you and your family
  • providing protection from intruders
  • improving your mood
  • assisting people with disabilities

But if you can’t take in an animal, don’t worry — there are ways you can still help! Consider fostering animals looking for homes, volunteering at your local shelter, or making a donation to a shelter or animal care organization.

In whatever way you can, pledge to do your part to help shelter dogs all year long.

Aug 30, 2017 Linda Petty Shelters run by gov should become no kill. plenty of people want to adopt pets. We must find ways to clear out the shelters through adoption. SPCA and Best Friends will work with shelters to stop killing. It can be done – it is being done.
