I’ll never forget Chilly’s adoption day. We went to the animal shelter looking for a cat, and we came home with an adorable, eight-week-old Labrador-something mix. We were planning to adopt a dog, AFTER a cat, but as life would have it, it happened the opposite way.
The American Humane Association celebrates each October as “Adopt-a-Dog” month. With millions of wonderful pups patiently waiting in shelters, this event raises much-needed awareness and helps encourage adoptions. So if you’ve been thinking about bringing home a new canine companion, there’s never been a better time.
In celebration of “Adopt-a-Dog” month, I’m sharing some heartwarming pictures of the dogs you’ve adopted and come to love. These are some of the hundreds of photos shared by my awesome followers, in celebration of their adopted dogs.
