Looking for a companion

Have you considered a warm, furry 4-legged friend? One who greets you after a hard day at work, free of judgment, just gives smooches, and is always happy to see you? On the other hand, maybe you would like an exercise companion or a best friend. October is Adopt-A-Dog Month® sponsored by American Humane Association.

For the 140-year old American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) “it's all shelter dogs, all the time.” October is extra special—it is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month!

The good news, it is not too late! Check your local shelter first. Looking for a specific breed, go online and check with a breed-specific rescue group. Bottom line, adopt a dog and “feel the love.”
