October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. Ideally, the best way to celebrate would be to adopt a shelter dog, however, if you are unable to do so, spread the word. Post it on Twitter, Facebook, and any other social media you can think of. ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) sponsors this event to promote the adoption of dogs from local shelters.
