The Animal Rescue Site: Adopt a Shelter Dog Month!

Linking to yesterday's post about providing free care and food for shelter animals (, today's post (also from The Animal Rescue Site) is about giving a 'forever home' to a lonely shelter pet!
So The Animal Rescue Site has declared October to be 'Adopt a Shelter Dog Month' this year! So what better time to head down to your local shelter and adopt a rescued dog (or cat!) to add to your family! (Obviously check with your parents/spouse/partner/house mates before doing this- I wouldn't want to cause any disturbances with my suggestions!)

Adding a dog to your household has plenty of benefits for you too!
- helps you to get outside and get some exercise
- provides companionship for you and your family
- can provide protection from intruders (I guess it depends on the breed of dog!)
- can alleviate stress and improve your mood
- can provide assistance for people with disabilities
(just to mention a few)

Don't worry if you can't adopt a pet this month (or at all), you can still help! You could foster animals while they are waiting for their 'forever home'; volunteer at a local rescue centre or shelter; make a donation to a shelter, kennel or animal care organization. In whatever way you can, pledge to help The Animal Rescue Site to promote their 'Adopt a Shelter Dog Month'! For more details or to pledge, go to:
