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.
