October is Adopt--A-Dog Month in Denver

October is Adopt-A-Dog month in Denver, and every shelter in town is offering some type of dog adoption deal. Are you looking for:

  • an exercise buddy?
  • a best friend and confidant for your child?
  • a dog you can train with to learn animal-assisted therapy?
  • a partner in agility competitions?
  • a constant companion for your favorite senior citizen?
  • a fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work?
An adopted dog can be all these things -- and so much more! And please don't overlook an older dog. They are well-past the destructive puppy stage and they make loyal and loving pets.
Your local shelter is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality -- all waiting for a loving home. Or, if you prefer a particular breed that isn’t currently available at a shelter, go online to find a breed-specific rescue group in need of adopters like you.
Find out what a shelter or rescue dog can bring to your life this October during Adopt-A-Dog Month!
