Celebrate Pet Adoption During the Month of October!

The ASPCA hosts Adopt a Shelter Dog Month every October, with the goal of raising awareness of the importance of adoption over buying pets from breeders. There are thousands of dogs sitting and waiting for homes at your local shelter as you read this, ranging from puppies to senior dogs to every age in between. You can find a wide variety of dog breeds at your local shelter as well. And of course, when you adopt a shelter dog, you're not just saving one life, but also freeing up valuable space within the shelter so another dog in-need can be brought in and cared for.

If you've been considering the option to get a dog or puppy, we hope you'll choose adoption. Adopt a Shelter Dog Month is a great time to welcome a dog into your life because many shelters host special adoption events during this time. As a result, you may be able to adopt a dog for no fee or a discounted adoption fee. You may also get to enjoy some additional incentives from your local shelter, including free microchipping, spay and neuter, and much more.
