The Winter Garden Animal Hospital in Winter Garden, Florida, supports Adopt A Shelter Dog Month in October. According to the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), an estimated 3 to 4 million dogs enter shelters nationwide each year. That's why in 1981 it established Adopt A Dog Month, to bring attention to the plight of shelter dogs and to encourage adoption. Abandoned, injured, ill, or abused, they all need a forever home. You could be a hero to one!
Adopt, Don't Shop!
The ASPCA wants you to Find Your Fido.
It's really a win-win-win situation. Here's how:
For the shelter:
For the dog:
The dog has a second chance, a new life where he is loved, properly cared for, respected, protected. He can be your walking buddy, your trained pet assistant, or just a happy, smiling face greeting you at the end of the day.
What If You Can't Adopt?
There are many ways other than adopting that you can be a hero. Support your local shelter or rescue group. They all need volunteers to feed, walk, clean the pets and their cages. They need donations of money or supplies. If you need help connecting with a shelter or rescue group, call your neighborhood veterinarian.
A Feel-Good Experience
Maybe it's because it's such a win-win-win situation, but those who adopt from a shelter or rescue group report that it is a fulfilling experience. Start there when you are ready to adopt a dog.
