So, what are you waiting for? With thousands of fabulous "friends" waiting, patiently in shelters all over the country, why not do yourself a favor and give a deserving dog or cat a "forever home."
A good place to start is the American Humane Association Adopt-A-Dog Month
From their website:
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!
Or, visit your local shelter!
