If you have been thinking of adopting a dog, now is the time to do it. October is Adopt a Dog Month! I personally believe and support supporting shelters and adopting shelter dogs and I know that you can too.
Each October, the American Humane Association along with local animal shelters across the country in promoting Adopt-A-Dog Month. Adopt a Dog Month is a large national campaign to highlight homeless dogs waiting to be adopted.
October is focused and used to encourage people to visit their local animal shelter first to adopt their new best friend."Right now there are millions of loving dogs in every size and shape imaginable waiting anxiously in local shelters for a home of their own", says the American Humane's President and CEO.
Why not spoil your new friend and get him everything he needs before he gets there. Your new buddy will need a- ID tag, food, bowls, leash, collar, dog den, and toys.
If you get a puppy, make sure you have housebreaking items, and lots of chew toys as well!
