Become a dog owner during Adopt-A-Dog Month in October!

Are you seeking a trusted friend? An exercise buddy? More meaning in life?

Consider enriching your world with a dog. Dog owners have different reasons for adding a furry family member, but they all enjoy a daily dose of love, loyalty and laughs.

If you’ve already decided that a dog is right for you, only one question remains: Where will you find the perfect canine companion?

Adopting from a local animal shelter or rescue group is your best option. Here’s why:

  • You’ll be giving a dog a second chance -- or even saving a life.
  • An estimated 3.7 million animals are euthanized in animal shelters every year, and you’ll be doing your part to address the tragic problem of pet overpopulation.
  • Shelters and rescue groups offer a wide variety of purebreds, mixed breeds, and big and little dogs, making it easy to find the perfect dog for you.

What are you waiting for? Companions eligible for adoption can be located through Start searching now for the perfect shelter or rescue dog in your area!
