It’s Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month
At the ASPCA it’s all shelter dogs, all the time. But the month of October is extra special—it’s Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month! This month the ASPCA invites you to check out their top dog care tips, this year’s video contest theme and some very special canine Happy Tails.
Unfortunately, it’s not all fun and games. Each year, nearly five to seven million animals enter local shelters across the country—five out of every ten dogs never make it out. The ASPCA Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month campaign strives to bring attention to the pet overpopulation problem we face in this country, while highlighting the many benefits of adoption.
Helping animals find loving forever homes and drastically decreasing the euthanasia of homeless pets are two of their top priorities. With your help the ASPCA can continue to save countless lives with nation-wide adoption initiatives, such as Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month.
Please join them and lend a hand to those who need it most.

This is Charlie Bear, who lives with Christina in London, Ontario Canada. She tells me that he wears these goggles with no problem.
Christina has a medical condition that requires her to have a Service Animal. Christina says, “My panic disorder makes it so that I have him with me. He’s the reason I’m able to go out during the day. His nickname is His Highness. He’s treated like royalty! We are both volunteers at a hospital for veterans. He’s had lots of adventures during his five years. And this coming spring(2011) he’s going to learn to ride a 126cc motorcycle. He will be my co-pilot. He already has a red scarf and the goggles! I’ll be waiting to read your books! When do they come out? Charlie Bear is God’s blessing to me.”
