Animal shelters unite to celebrate October's Adopt a Shelter Dog Month declared by the ASPCA.
When thinking about pet adoption, it's always best to adopt from a local animal shelter or rescue center. In many states, such as California and soon to be New York, the sale of pets in pet stores is illegal. This is because it's best to adopt, not shop!
Approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.3 million are dogs. Without adoption, shelter pups risk euthanization - about 670,000 each year.
This October, consider adopting a young or senior dog from a local animal. For new pet adopters in the month of October, Deerbusters will award extra discounts on dog fence kits. Contact Deerbusters.com to learn more.
