October Is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month!

According to the ASPCA website, "October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month, and that means it’s time to pay tribute to all things canine and get more homeless pups into forever homes. To get the party started, we’ve prepared a special section on devoted to the lovable, loyal shelter pooch. Whether you’re an experienced dog guardian or are thinking about adopting in the future, this is the place to celebrate and find answers to all your questions about shelter dogs.

Learn how to find the right dog for you, use our nationwide search tool to find him, and then read all about how to keep him happy, healthy and entertained for the duration of your lives together! And aspiring Spielbergs, take note: you can make your pup a star by entering our Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month video contest! You have plenty of time to produce your masterpiece—the deadline for submissions is October 31.

Head over to to read all about it, and remember—there are millions of wonderful, adorable shelter dogs in our country who need homes, so please opt to adopt!"

As many of you know, we have rescued a dog recently and have completely fallen in love with her. Here is our little love Mandie:

If you can find it in your heart and home, head on over to the ASPCA and save a life today.  If you are not able to take a dog into your home, please give what you can from the heart.  Thank you!

We once had 3 dogs and a cat, but are now completely pet-less. It's a little too quiet around here. If we were to get another dog we would definitely look into this. It sounds like a wonderful program.

Lorie, I'm going to definitely check this out. You know Dave & I are looking for a dog, and if I could save one all the better. That's how I found our Cleo. Anyway, Girlfriend do me a favor. This girl needs votes for a picture or something like that, and I told her I'd vote if she came over Monday & played along with us. So, go here: #6 at the over 40 meme. I do that one on Friday too & tell her I sent you. Thanks Hon! Off to a birthday party, I'll be back though to read this - PROMISE! LOVE YA! DOLLY

How great to promote this!
Another pup for you?? You do like a full house don't you?!

I'm not a dog person, but I am very grateful for those of you out there who are doing your part to give homes to as many shelter dogs as you can. Every pet deserves a good home.

I can't wait until I'm out on my own and can adopt a shelter animal of my own {or several LOL}!

What a great post :)

This is a great organization, they do wonders. It is a very nice gesture for you to promote this. I do donate once in a while to them.

I'm trying to see if I can adopt a service dog. I don't think I can afford the $800 they want for a Companion/Service dog. I'm getting to the point where I panic when I go out in public. So, Wish me luck. If you know anything, let me know.

what a nice post! We have a local 'Whisker Walk' this Saturday. To raise funds for the shelters & awareness about homeless animals. If you don't have a dog of your own to walk or borrow you can walk one of the shelters dogs! I so miss my 2 yorkies, and our kitties. I Would love to have another little dog, but have to wait until some health problems clear up, I have 15 steps to climb to talk a new friend out for a walk! ~hugs, Faythe @GMT
