Goal: 45,000 Progress: 21,934
Sponsored by: The Animal Rescue Site

Rescue dogs make a great pet any time of year, but during each October shelters and animal lovers observe Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, a month-long endeavor to celebrate shelter dogs and promote adoption. What better time than now to march down to your local shelter and take home a canine in need? A new dog can greatly improve your life by:

  • helping you get outside and exercise
  • providing companionship for you and your family
  • providing protection from intruders
  • improving your mood
  • assisting people with disabilities

But if you can’t take in an animal, don’t worry — there are ways you can still help! Consider fostering animals looking for homes, volunteering at your local shelter, or making a donation to a shelter or animal care organization.

In whatever way you can, pledge to do your part to help shelter dogs all year long.
