Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month

October is Adopt-A-Dog Month!  With nearly 10 million animals entering local shelters across the country each year the Adopt a Shelter Dog Month helps focus attention on the pet population problem. Your local shelter is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality — all waiting for a loving home. Or, if you prefer a particular breed that isn’t currently available at a shelter, go online to find a breed-specific rescue group in need of adopters like you.  Find a shelter near you by plugging in your ZIP/Postal Code at
