October is American Humane Association's Adopt-A-Dog Month

What Can An Adopted Dog Bring To Your Life?
There are as many responses to that question as there are dogs in this world! That’s why -- during American Humane Association’s Adopt-A-Dog Month celebration in October -- we’re encouraging people to adopt a shelter dog and experience the joy of finding their own answers.

Are you looking for:

an exercise buddy?
a best friend and confidant for your child?
a dog you can train with to learn animal-assisted therapy?
a partner in agility competitions?
a constant companion for your favorite senior citizen?
a fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work?
An adopted dog can be all these things -- and so much more!

OK, sure, it's always sad to say good bye to Summer, but rather than dwell on that, let's get ready for the next Big Fun Holiday: Halloween!

Either way, here are some ideas and tips for a great Halloween:

Hint: You might want to keep some dog treats handy for any furry trick-or-treaters!
