Did you know that October is Adopt-A-Dog® month? All months are good to adopt a dog from a local animal shelter but October is the month that the American Humane Society goes above and beyond to promote the importance of finding abandoned animals a forever home.
The first ever Adopt-A-Dog month occurred in 1981 and has now lasted for 35 straight years.
If you are considering getting a new dog, don’t buy it from a pet store or breeder. Adopt instead!
There are several animal shelters and rescue groups throughout Auburn and Lincoln, CA to adopt a dog from this October.
