October is "National Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month", where pet businesses (like The Lofty Dog) make an extra effort to encourage Americans to adopt a lonely dog instead of buying a puppy.
Most dogs in shelters are happy, healthy pets who were guilty of nothing more than being unloved. Making matters worse, is that they don't have long to live, with most shelters killing dogs that don't get adopted in a matter of days.
If you've been wanting a dog, please visit your local animal shelter and give a four-legged bundle of happiness another chance at life.
