October is National Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month

 

Annually, October is deemed as National Adopt-A-Pet Month, with the hopes and encouragement that more shelter animals are placed in “fur” ever homes. There are thousands of animals that are misplaced, abandoned, and sent to shelters, and some of them are able to find homes, yet sadly many more are euthanized. To increase awareness, local, regional and national shelters join together each year, to produce productivity among those who are able and willing to adopt a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter.

 

If one is unable to adopt a pet from a local shelter, there are online and offline ways of contributing without having to adopt.

 

Several ways to assist in this worldwide endeavor are:

 

1. Contacting your local shelter and inquiring about a wish list they have for items they need to let others know.

 

 

2. Share an adoptable dog from a shelter, networking or other animal suppor group on your Facebook or Twitter page each day of the month. Using the hash tag #savedogs is also helpful and useful.

 

 

3. Add a Petfinder (or other animal support/rescue organization) widget and/or banner to your Web site or blog.

 

 

4. Write and op-ed about the importance of pet adoption for your local paper.

 

 

5. Donate to your local shelter or rescue group in honor of Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month.
