October is Adopt-A-Dog Month

    DENVER—You and your clients can save the day for a homeless dog by adopting a dog during American Humane's Adopt-A-Dog Month in October.

    "Adopting a dog from your local shelter is a simple, yet heroic deed," said American Humane President and CEO Marie Belew Wheatley. "By providing a home to an animal that doesn't have one, you can help reduce the regrettably high number of homeless pets in this country. And you'll be rewarded in so many ways as you experience the joy of building an invincible bond with a loving and faithful companion."

    Dog adoption isn't something to take lightly, but it is an extremely rewarding, life-changing experience, and possibly a life-saving experience for the dog. To learn more about the adoption process, direct clients to the American Humane's website at www.americanhumane.org.
