October may be over, but helping shelter dogs is a year-round endeavor
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.
