ASPCA's Adopt a Shelter Dog Month in October

October Is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month

Millions of pets in the United States are currently homeless and in shelters, awaiting their forever homes. October is the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals' Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and it's a great time to bring a new furry friend into your home. Our Johnston veterinarian at Rush Animal Care is celebrating Adopt A Shelter Dog month by supporting all of our families who are giving shelter dogs a home for good.

What Is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month?

Adopt A Shelter Dog Month is run by the ASPCA and occurs every October. Many shelters and rescue organizations run special events to help potential adopters get to know their dogs who are available for adoption. While it's always a great time to adopt a dog in need, in October, the ASPCA works to promote their mission of finding homeless dogs at their NYC adoption center find forever homes. Not in the NYC area? No worries- there are ASPCA shelters nationwide with adoptable dogs.

Can't Do Pet Adoption Right Now? Other Ways To Celebrate

If it's not a good time for you to adopt a pet, there are other ways that you can support Adopt A Shelter Dog Month. Donations are always welcome at the ASPCA, and the money you give will go towards providing food, bedding, and medical care to dogs in shelters. The ASPCA is also doing a social media fundraiser- simply post a picture of your favorite rescue dog every day in October and ask your friends to donate $1 per day to the ASPCA. These small donations can make a huge difference in the lives of homeless pets!
