Adopt A Dog Month!

OCTOBER IS THE AMERICAN HUMANE SOCIETY'S ADOPT A DOG MONTH

We adopted Phoebe from a PetSmart store Everyday Adoption Center.  She is our little angel and we can't imagine our family without her!
OCTOBER IS ALSO THE ASPCA'S ADOPT A SHELTER DOG MONTH

Phoebe brings so much joy to our family!  Adopting her was one of the best decisions we've ever made.  Find your new best friend and family member at an animal shelter or rescue!
SO WHAT'S A HUMAN TO DO??   ADOPT A DOG, OF COURSE!!  PLEASE SHARE TO ENCOURAGE DOG ADOPTION THIS MONTH.

Think of all the fun Dog Friendly Events you could be taking your new dog to this Fall!

  1. I love the "leaf" images - it has been raining so much here everything is soaked through and even the leaves are sad! Great shot - Happy fall!

    1. I'm sorry your leaves aren't happy! Hopefully the sun will come out soon & dry them up a bit. Phoebe gets a kick out of running through leaves so we let them pile up.

  2. Every month should be adopt a dog month! It's nice to know a special time has been set aside to encourage shelter adoptions. Too right about all the dog friendly events people are missing!

  11. Every cat in a shleter needs a home. Every dog needs a home. So pets need neutering so we can ALL have cats and dogs and no-one is unloved!

    1. Absolutely! I'm a huge proponent of spay/neuter.

  14. We've been trying to adopt a dog for Scout, our daughter, to grow up with, but have been cut off at seemingly every turn. We are hoping that this month is the month!

    1. Oh no! I'm so sorry, I'll bet just the right dog is there but just not "ready" for you just yet. Every girl should have a dog! Be patient, you'll be led to the right dog for Scout I'm sure.

    1. Hey, any time's the right time for the right dog! We just need to remind everyone to Adopt and keep reminding them.

    1. I think so too, it reminds people to adopt and keeps it in people's minds.

  18. We have always adopted our pets sometimes from shelters and other times as strays right off the streets. I absolutely LOVE adoption and hope others will consider it as an option for their next furry family member. Rescue pets rock!

    1. I love it too! Every one of my pets was also a shelter pet or stray except for one, which sort of just happened - LONG story!

    1. So do we, maybe one day in our lifetimes we won't need shelters anymore. I pray that happens.

  21. I always try and do something special for a local shelter this month since we're not in a place to adopt right now. We normally try to put together a nice donation package for them.

    1. I love that! What a beautiful thing to do for pets in need. Some shelters also have Day Foster programs where you can take a dog out of the shelter for just one day of fresh air, exercise, and love! It really helps. Have you blogged about your special shelter donation package? I'd love to read about it & see photos of what you include.

  22. Great post that gets right to the point! I hope tons of dogs and other pets are adopted throughout the remainder of the month (and beyond, of course). Thanks for reminding me of these monthly designations so I can be sure to share with my readers as well! Great photos!

    1. Thanks Bryn! I so hope many, many pets get adopted. The holidays are coming & you know those hateful puppy millers are in full swing producing puppies for holiday gifting - which is a BAD idea!

  23. My parents also adopted three dogs from a PetSmart adoption organization and all three were amazing dogs. There's something very special about saving a dog's life and getting their amazing love and devotion in return.

    1. Kudos to your parents!! That's awesome. I agree, they can be the most loving, loyal pets. I truly believe they know they've been rescued!

  24. Adopting a rescue pet is awesome! Several of my dogs came from a local shelter, most we got as puppies, but Theo was 4 or 5 when we adopted him. He has been a wonderful addition to our family!
