Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month

Jen at Shiba Inu Spirit blogged about October being Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog month. She's fostered and otherwise helped a number of shelter dogs so that they could find forever homes with families that were right for them. Her new pup, Maisy, is even an adopted shelter dog like me!

I wanted to help spread the word about Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog month. There are so many animals in shelters and with animal rescue services that need homes. If you have the resources (this is important because we do require money, space, and YOUR TIME!) consider adopting an awesome dog to be your companion. If you don't have the resources to adopt, consider donating just your time or some money or even requested items to a local shelter or breed rescue that you want to support.

Dogs like me wouldn't have had much of a chance without shelters and rescue efforts to place us in good homes. We also wouldn't have a chance without responsible humans who are willing to make a commitment to us for the rest of our lives.

Shelter dogs dream of "happily ever after", too!
