We're celebrating national Adopt a Shelter Dog month here at Talking Dogs. Usually every Sunday we feature a dog (or two) that is available for adoption from an animal shelter or rescue.
Today we'd like to encourage you to find your own dog to adopt!
According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 to 7 million dogs and cats enter animal shelters in the United States every year. About 60% are euthanized.
Have a look and listen to the video below, then visit your local animal shelter.
If you can't adopt right now, see what else you can do to help those pets find loving homes. Surf over to Petfinder or Petango and use social networking to get the word out about some of the dogs listed there. Explore the web and your community to find a dog rescue that could use your help.
Spread the word: Adopt a Shelter Dog!
