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

October is also American Humane Association’s Adopt-A-Dog Month and the organization is asking – “What can an adopted dog bring to your life?”

Dori Villalon, vice president of Animal Protection for American Humane Association is quoted in a press release as saying – “Adopt-A-Dog Month is a strong reminder of the urgent need to find homes for millions of homeless pets across America. This year we are asking: What can an adopted dog bring to your life?

“There are so many responses to that question — a best friend, an exercise buddy, a companion for an aging parent. An adopted dog can be all of these things — and so much more.”

Also from the release –

You may be the perfect dog owner if you:

– Believe caring for a dog for 15 years does not seem like a lifetime.
– Look forward to big, wet kisses when you come home each day.
– Don’t mind sharing your house with someone who sheds, tracks dirt occasionally and possibly drools.
– Want to take care of another living creature every day.
– Would love a playmate who likes to chase balls and take you on walks.
– Are happy to spend your extra money on pet food, toys, veterinary care, chew bones — and more chew bones.
– Want someone to adore you even on a bad-hair day.
– Believe that spaying and neutering pets is vital to solving the pet-overpopulation problem.
– Can’t imagine leaving your devoted pet behind if you move.
– Enjoy unconditional love and constant companionship.
