October is my favorite month of the year.
The leaves changing, pumpkin everything, crisp mornings, the clothes!
You know what else is great about October? It’s Adopt-A-Dog Month.
Having a rescue dog myself, adoption is a big part of my heart.
For years before bringing Lupin home, I told my family that no one will ever love you like a rescue dog and I couldn’t have been more right.
Did you know each year on average 3-4 million animals sit in shelters waiting for someone to love them and give them a home?
American Humane established Adopt-A-Dog Month back in 1981 to encourage people to save the lives of pets and to better their own through adoption.
There’s plenty of ways to celebrate so be sure to check out American Humane’s website to learn more.
And most importantly be sure to support your local shelters by giving a pet a loving home.
They say rescuing a dog is saving them but I promise you, they’ll save you too.
As always, if you ever want to chat about adoption and what Lupin and I went through, please feel free to reach out.
