October is Adopt a Dog Month - Kansas City Dog Photography

Did you know October is American Humane Association's Adopt-A-Dog Month?

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 -- 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.

Find out what a shelter or rescue dog can bring to your life this October during Adopt-A-Dog Month!

There are many rescues and shelters out there who have an abundance of animals who need a new home. Here are just a few you should consider checking out:

The Animal Rescue Alliance (TARA)
Mid America Bully Breed Rescue (MABBR)
The Pet Connection
Halfway Homes Pet Adoptions

Please consider adopting a dog if you are looking to add to your furry family. I know they will be forever grateful and smile this big for you!!
