Adopt A Shelter Dog This October!

Dog With Big Stick

Adopt A Shelter Dog Month With Our Derby Veterinarian

Right now, millions of dogs are in shelters waiting to be taken to their forever home. October is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, and there's never been a better time to welcome a new furry family member. Our veterinarian at El Paso Animal Hospital is accepting new patients, and making an appointment for a checkup is a great way to get your new dog off to a great start.

What Is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month?

Adopt A Shelter Dog Month is a time for animal lovers to help and celebrate shelter dogs by adopting, donating, and fundraising to help shelter dogs. There is a way for everyone who cares about dogs to get involved, even if it's not the right time to bring a new pet into your home.

Who Hosts Adopt A Shelter Dog Month?

The ASPCA founded Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, but the month is celebrated by animal shelters and veterinarians across the United States. Many animal shelters have special events this month to make it easier for potential fur moms and dads to adopt their new pets. These events include dog meet and greets, no fee adoption days, and clear the shelter days.

Why Shelter Dog Pet Adoption Matters

In many shelters, dogs who are not adopted within a certain time frame are euthanized. This means that a dog's life comes to an end simply because they weren't adopted- not because they were suffering or in pain. This needs to stop, and Adopt A Shelter Dog Month literally gives dogs in need a second chance at the full life they deserve.
