Goal: 45,000 Progress: 21,358
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.

Mar 31, 2016 Quintina Vineyard All animals deserve to run and play and be loved. When an animal sits in a cage they get depressed and feel that no one loves them. Please adopt a shelter pet today and provide the love and security that so well deserve.
