Shelter dogs come in all shapes and sizes, from tiny Pomeranians to big dog breeds like Great Danes. Tweet, retweet and repeat the following: “Ready to Save a Life? October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month. Adopt a dog!” #adoptdontshop

Pictures say a thousand words! Ask a local shelter or rescue group if you could photograph their adoptable pets and upload the pics to their social media sites. If they don’t have a website or facebook page, offer to help make that happen.

Donate your time or financially to your local shelter or rescue group in honor of Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month. You’d be amazed how far your dollar can stretch in the right hands to feed and care for shelter dogs. One way to be sure what you give is used wisely is to volunteer. Look at your calendar, select one day a week or twice a month for a couple hours.
