What Can An Adopted Dog Bring To Your Life?
There are as many responses to that question as there are dogs in this world! That’s why that during American Humane Association’s Adopt-A-Dog Month celebration in October, we’re encouraging people to adopt a shelter dog and experience the joy of finding their own answers.
Are you looking for:
An exercise buddy?
A best friend and confidant for your child?
A dog you can train with to learn animal-assisted therapy?
A partner in agility competitions?
A constant companion for your favorite senior citizen?
A fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work?
An adopted dog can be all these things — and so much more!
Your local shelter is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality — all waiting for a loving home. Or, if you prefer a particular breed that isn’t currently available at a shelter, go online to find a breed-specific rescue group in need of adopters like you.
