Yes, I am an adopted dog from the shelter and proud of it!
Nevertheless, there's another reason to celebrate October: It's Adopt A Shelter Dog Month! And those fabulous folks at Petfinder.com have put together lots of great ideas for you to help spread the word, even if you can't adopt a pooch this month. The ASPCA is also geared up to help us all get involved and promote this special month, with great ideas about how to choose the right pooch for you and to successfully integrate a shelter dog into your home.
A heartfelt thank you to these and other organizations that help spread the good word about pet adoption!
