National Adopt a dog month
National Adopt a Shelter dog month!
Are you thinking about adopting a dog? What better month than October?
If you are looking for a companion, a hiking pal, a friend for grandparents or parents, an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day then this might just be the perfect timing!
Across our valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many No-Kill Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. But what about those dogs that end up in our High-Kill Shelters? Maybe this is a good month to dedicate our adoptions to one of the shelters which pets don’t have good chances in making it out. We all know what they are facing after just a few short days, so let’s make this month one that we dedicate to getting down to the “Kill Shelters” and finding a new friend!
We're not saying that you should avoid other shelters where animals do have good chances at finding homes and do not face euthanasia, we're simply offering the idea to dedicate this month to see if we can make a difference in some of the dogs lives that weren’t so lucky to end up in a no-kill shelter.
Pinal Animal Control and Maricopa Rabies Animal Control are two “High-Kill” Shelters where many dogs only have 3-7 days to get adopted.
If you are looking for a new pet please consider these two Control Facilities. You will never forget the smile on the dogs face as he walks out with you and gets in the car to ride home to his new family. You will find a forever family member and one that will likely never forget that you and your family came that delightful day to make a difference in his life.
