Adopt A Shelter Dog Month
There’s something unique and truly amazing about the love you receive from an animal. It’s unconditional, and with that kind of affection comes an astounding loyalty and trust that is nearly impossible to break. Adopting a dog or a cat is not a simple decision. There are a thousand factors to take into account: supplies, vet bills, children (who may have allergies or phobias of certain animals), your own availability to care and play with your pet. But if you find yourself craving the comfort and companionship of a furry little friend, you will not only be adopting a pet, but a brand new member to the family.
If you’ve decided that the living room rug is just right for a cute and cuddly addition to your home, then October is the perfect time to make that vision into a reality. This month, according to the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), is Adopt A Shelter Dog (or cat!) Month. For this month only, the Kentucky Humane Society is offering a special discount for all adoptions. You can take home a dog or a cat in need of a loving home for $50 off the regular price. There are no limitations - this offer applies to all breeds of all ages.
There are nine permanent adoption sites to choose from, so visit www.kyhumane.org to find your nearest location. You can also check out the list of adoptable animals they have at the shelters, with a picture and small profile of each pet. You can see if Trigger is good with children and other dogs, how old Spot is, or even if Dopey is spayed or neutered. Maybe you’re looking for a kitten you can raise with care and patience, or an older cat who has been through some tough times and just needs a buddy to cuddle with. No matter what you’re searching for, you’ll be able to find your perfect match.
Hundreds of shelter animals are euthanized each year and are never able to experience the joy of being with a loving family. If you’ve been missing the warmth of a sleeping kitty by your side, or the invigoration of a nice walk with a fuzzy best friend, then take advantage of this limited time offer. There’s a special little someone out there just waiting for you - all you have to do is take them home.
