During American Humane Association’s 'Adopt-A-Dog Month,’ people are encouraged to adopt a homeless dog, not to buy one from a puppy mill, a breeder, or a pet store, and to experience the joy and the satisfaction of saving an abandoned canine's life.
Are you looking for:
- an exercise buddy?
- a best friend and confidant for your child?
- a devoted companion for your favorite senior citizen?
- a furry face to greet you after a hard day at work?
- a new friend for the pet that you already have at home?
An adopted dog can be all of these things -- and so much more.
As an animal rescuer, I sadly know that Man’s Best Friend needs all the help that he or she can get right now in our abysmal economy. All of my dogs were once abandoned and homeless waifs; and today, they are all truly appreciative, loving, loyal companions.
And one of my tasks these days is helping to find loving new homes for the many homeless, and abandoned, and abused pets that we now rescue from the mean city streets, the forests, and the rural areas of America, each and every day now. There are so many truly deserving and truly affectionate canines out there right now, who truly need a new friend and a second chance at life.
And your local animal shelter is the perfect place to look for deserving dogs of every size, type, age, and personality -- all waiting for a friend like you, and a loving new home.
Or, if you prefer a particular breed of dog that isn’t currently available at your local shelter, you can easily go online to find a breed-specific canine rescue group in your area that is in dire need of people who are willing to foster and/or adopt one of their many deserving, left behind dogs.
Why not find out what a shelter or a rescue group dog can bring to your life this October during Adopt-A-Dog Month? Your New Best Friend is Anxiously Waiting to Meet You.
