Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month

FURminator® wishes to salute the many dedicated employees and volunteers at shelters who help to place homeless canines in loving homes and bring joy to so many people.

Some may believe that dogs are in shelters because they behave badly or are sick. However, most pets that end up in shelters are there due to human problems such as landlord issues or lack of time or finances. Animal shelters are actually full of many happy, healthy pets that have been vaccinated, spayed or neutered and evaluated for behavior to ensure that they’ll fit in with families.

If you are thinking about getting a dog, check out a shelter in your area. By adopting a shelter dog, not only are you giving them a second chance, but you will also have a lifelong companion that will bring many years of love and devotion to your family.

There are dogs of every size, shape and personality who are wagging their tails right now in hopes that you’ll select them to be part of your life!
