Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, sponsored by the ASPCA to promote the adoption of dogs from local shelters. Of course, anytime is a great time to adopt a shelter dog!

We are proud sponsors of Texas Humane Heroes, a local nonprofit pet adoption center dedicated to finding homes for abandoned dogs (and cats, too!). Meet a few of the dogs being sheltered at Texas Humane Heroes waiting to be adopted into a forever home. 

The need is great . . .

According to the ASPCA, more than three million dogs enter shelters each year. When these abandoned and often abused animals find their way to a shelter, each one is in need of a loving home. By adopting one of these dogs, you are giving them a chance to find a great home with people who will take good care of them.

Want to help but not ready to adopt?

  • Share the need with friends and family.
  • Volunteer at a pet adoption center.
  • Become a “foster parent” for puppies needing extra care.
  • Make a donation or contact the pet adoption center for a list of their most urgent needs.
