October for… National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and Adopt a Dog Month


The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and the American Humane Association (AHA) have deemed the month of October National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and Adopt a Dog Month, respectively.

According to the ASPCA, approximately 3.3 million dogs enter shelters every year. When these abandoned and often abused dogs find their way to a shelter, each one needs a forever home and their potential is limitless. Some of the benefits of adoption are often hidden. Human and canine both enjoy increased activity and social interaction through daily walks. Humans develop patience as they learn the ways of their new four-legged companion. Dogs explore the many scents of the human lifestyle.

The names are slightly different, but the goal is the same — National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and Adopt a Dog Month are both about getting as many great dogs as possible into the loving homes they deserve 🐕⚡
