ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) sponsors this event to promote the adoption of dogs from local shelters.
Human and canine both enjoy an increased activity and social interaction through daily walks. Humans develop patience as they learn the ways of their new four-legged companion. Dogs explore the many scents of the human lifestyle, usually discovering shoes are off-limits.
No matter the breed, size, or demeanor of the human, er, canine, our shelter will take the time to find the right home for our adoptable animals. We schedule visits and have procedures in place to promote healthy adoptions for families and individuals. While some dogs have experienced injury or illness, we work with veterinarians to heal the animals before making them available for adoption.
Of course, donations and volunteers are always welcome. Dogs love to be walked, played with and loved even if they haven’t found their forever home. During Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, visit, volunteer, donate, and adopt!
HOW TO OBSERVE
Ideally, the best way to celebrate would be to adopt a shelter dog. However, if you are unable to do so, spread the word. Volunteers and donations are welcome, too! Post it on Twitter, Facebook, and any other social media you can think of using #AdoptAShelterDogMonth.
