Happy October, everyone.
Here's something from an ASPCA email I got this morning:
I say this regularly here: there are so many wonderful dogs out there who are languishing in shelters for lack of homes. Won't you consider sharing your life and your love with one of them? Chances are that the dog who becomes your companion will give far more to you than you give to him or her.
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 ASPCA.org 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.
