Did you know that the ASPCA, and other animal rescue and welfare groups nation wide are working independently to let the public know that October is Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month?
The struggling economy has meant more animals than ever are in need of homes. Shelters in the US are sadly overfilled with dogs, that have been found running loose, discovered abandonned in homes that have been forclosed on, or surrendered by their previous owners. So if your family has the time and resources to expand and include a new loyal, loving member, this month is the time to visit a shelter near you. The ASPCA can help you find one: http://www.aspca.org/adoption/shelters/

And with the vast amount of information about adoption and animal care on the internet, you will be able to make an informed decision about the right dog for you. For example, dogtime.com provides a questionnaire that will profile your personality and recommend the best breeds for your lifestyle. Click here to check it out and take the test!

Many shelters also now use similar methods to help you find a loveable Mutt with the winning combination of personality traits for your family! And during the month of October many animal rescue groups will also be running specials and discounts on adoption fees as incentive to find as many forever homes as possible for the millions of dogs in need.

Please help!
