American Humane created the Adopt-A-Dog month campaign to spotlight how many animals are waiting to get their permanent homes. Maybe you can help?:

Adopt-A-Dog Month®

What Can An Adopted Dog Bring To Your Life?

Since 1981, American Humane has celebrated “Adopt-a-Dog Month®” each October in an effort to help the estimated 3-4 million animals waiting in shelters every year get the loving, forever homes that they deserve.Be a hero this month and adopt a dog from your local shelter or rescue group. You’ll be saving his or her life and greatly improving your own as dogs are amazing, supportive, and heroic companions.

Whether you’re adopting your first dog or bringing home yet another to add to your family, American Humane wants to ensure you’re prepared for the energetic – and sometimes messy – life with your new best friend.

Ready to adopt? Find a shelter near you!

Your local shelter is the perfect place to find dogs of every breed, 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 legitimate breed-specific rescue group in need of adopters like you.

FCVC has made it easy for you to find the perfect shelter or rescue dog with the Adopt-A-Pet widget on our home page. You can browse through the pets at 17,000+ shelters, narrowing it down to the ones closest to you. We hope you will choose a pet from a rescue or shelter and not buy one from a puppy mill.
