Rescue a Shelter Dog and Get a Loyal Sidekick for All of Life's Adventures

You can save the day for a homeless dog -- and find a faithful companion who will be at your side for all of lifes adventures -- by adopting a dog from your local shelter or breed-rescue group during American Humanes Adopt-A-Dog Month in October.

Adopting a dog is a heroic feat thats easy to perform, and animal shelters and breed-rescue groups are filled with amazing dogs: large, small, mixed breeds, even purebreds. In fact, millions of loyal, lovable dogs are surrendered to our nations animal welfare organizations every year because their owners simply couldnt take care of them anymore. Now theyre homeless -- and just waiting for a hero like you!

During Adopt-A-Dog Month, we encourage you to visit your local shelter or breed-rescue group, meet potential sidekicks and discover the many super-size benefits of having a dog: happiness, companionship, improved physical and emotional health, and devoted love. Dogs also encourage people to exercise, enhance family and social relationships, promote laughter and act as a nonjudgmental audience and sounding board. Now thats super!IMG_7049

American Humane works year-round to support animal welfare organizations, promote adoptions and enhance the bond that people share with their companion animals. And each year during Adopt-A-Dog Month, we give shelters tools and resources to continue fostering connections between people and pets.

If you would like me to feature your rescue on the For The Love Of Dog blog next month write a story about their adoption and send it to me using the Bark Back form. One can never tire of reading rescue stories with happy endings. The Dogster with the best rescue story will be awarded 100 zealies! Better get those paws typing.

Our beautiful rescue crew: Copper, Bo, Logan. They are such a huge part of our lives, sometimes I wonder if we rescued them, or they rescued us?
