October: Adopt a Dog Month

My Adopted Baby, Mandie =)

October is American Humane Association's Adopt-A-Dog Month. A dog can bring SO much to your life:

  • an exercise buddy
  • a best friend and confidant for your child
  • a dog you can train with to learn animal-assisted therapy
  • a partner in agility competitions
  • a constant companion for your favorite senior citizen
  • a fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work

  • PLEASE if you are looking to add a furry family member to your household, call or visit your local shelter to find the perfect dog for your needs. There are (unfortunately) so many kinds of doggies at the shelters that I'm sure you can find the one that will fill your home and your heart.

    If you are looking for a particular breed that you don't see at the shelter, go online to find a breed-specific rescue group in need of adopters like you.

    We are truly happy with everyone of the doggies we have adopted, sure, we may be a little crazy to have five, but we love them all and have gotten five times the love in return!

    For more information, or if you're not in a position to adopt but can donate a small amount to help care for these precious creatures until they are adopted, head on over to the Humane Societies website. You can even donate to your local shelter. I know they would appreciate anything you can contribute, be it food, blankets, money, or even your time.

    “I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source.”
