I think that adopt a shelter dog month is awesome.

We recently adopted a Bichon-Poo from a Southern CA shelter (we even got a head start since it was Sep 29!). Our family could not be any more happy with her and she is doing great in her new environment.


Opt to adopt! Wonderful, pithy expression. So many cats and dogs in our American shelters and they are just begging for good homes.


I think they don't kill dogs:)


Adopt a shelter dog is nice. Because if you ask me adoption is the only option.
