Bring Home A Furry Family Member During Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month!

Grow Your Family During Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month!

 Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month: it’s the perfect time for pet adoption!

October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog month, so there’s no better time to bring home a new four-legged friend than right now. During this month, we want to highlight just how many shelter dogs need loving homes. If you’ve got a soft spot for these in-need animals, use these tips to do your part during Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month.

  • Of course, the best thing you can do this month is adopt a shelter dog. If you have space in your home and your heart, visit a local shelter. You’re sure to fall in love.
  • Leverage your social media to bring awareness. Share pictures of local animals that need adoption.
  • Donate your time or money to your local animal shelter. Shelters often have certain items they need, too. Call and ask if there are any items you might not need (e.g. old blankets) that you could give to help.
  • Sign up to be a foster parents, keeping dogs who need extra love in your home until they can find their forever homes.
  • Even if you are in the market for a specific breed of dog, you don’t have to purchase one from a breeder, pet store, or worse yet, a puppy mill.
  • Every breed of dog has a rescue and you can contact them and make the necessary arrangements to adopt the breed of your choice without contributing to the unnecessary profiteering or exploitation that sometimes comes along with those industries.
  • I adopted a rescue pup earlier this year and my life has never been better. My girl, Millie, was found on the streets of Los Angeles, barely a year old.  I’m told she is a “chi-mini” because we think she’s a mix of Chihuahua and miniature pincher or dachshund. She’s the sweetest, most well dispositioned, non-aggressive, ten pound pup you’d ever want to know – and she’s mine!

Thanks for partnering with The Maria Sanchez Show to help shelter dogs find homes this October!
