October is Adopt a Dog Month

October is Adopt a Dog Month. If you’re considering a pet; please consider adoption or rescue! Each year, an estimated 3-4 million animals waiting in shelters for someone to give them a safe, loving home never find a hero to adopt them and, tragically, are euthanized.

Dogs are amazing and supportive companions who can make a huge difference in your life as a best friend, an exercise buddy, someone who can be trained to provide animal-assisted therapy and help those with challenges they may face, or simply be a face to greet you after a hard day at work.

We rescued our dog Presley almost two years ago. It was the best decision we could’ve made. We tossed the idea around for a long long time and finally pulled the trigger one random weekend. It may seem like an overwhelming responsibility, but it’s really not once it becomes your reality.

Here’s a pic of our pup:
