October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. To get ready for the celebration, we’ve outlined our top three reasons for adopting a shelter dog.
1) You’ll save a life. More than 2 million cats and dogs are euthanized each year. Shelter adoption can reduce those numbers considerably.
2) You’ll get unconditional love. Dogs are loyal and accepting, perceptive and can help bring balance to your life.
3) You’ll be healthier because of it. Pets help lower blood pressure and reduce stress and anxiety. They boost our immune system, and studies show kids who grow up with pets in the home are less susceptible to allergies.
