October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month – Animal Rescue Site.com

I planned to blog about this then life got in the way of blogging.

October: Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

Save a life of a shelter dog by speaking out and sharing about the joy of adopting. I’m an adoptive mother of one wonderful daughter, many dogs and four rabbits. I must say that the more we can share the joy of adoption, we can show the world that buying a dog does not mean you will get a perfect and healthy animal.

In fact from reading and learning from a few ethical dog breeders (who buy back their puppies for life, making buyers sign a contract to always bring the dog back to them) healthy purebred dogs end up  hard to find.

Why? Well, even AKC breeders have been reported to turn out sick puppies, by inbreeding genetic weakness. Many popular breed dogs come with scary and heartbreaking illnesses. Read my post on this investigative report “Today Show: American Kennel Club Approved Puppy Mill.”

Please read and share.

Mutts benefit from vigor, unique looks and temperament. Plus those who want a purebred dog have hundred’s to choose from in breed specific rescues. So here’s to Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and The Animal Rescue Site.

Yes, we agree.
Don’t Shop, ADOPT

Thanks for caring and sharing, Deborah Taylor-French



Hi Readers

As the title suggests – apparently October is Adopt a shelter dog month.

Now I’m all for these monthly drives to get people’s interest perked up once in a while but does it not suggest that October you should adopt but the rest of the year pass it all by?

EVERY month, EVERY week, EVERY day should be adopt an animal day – whether you’re into cats, dogs, pigs – if you want a pet and you don’t intend to show it or have a licence to breed THEN ADOPT. Simple as that.

I’m not getting on my soap box a preaching the rights and wrongs of breeding – each one of us has an opinion and are entitle to that opinion. My only comment to this is “responsible” breeding NOT puppy farm, or “oops my dog got out” kind of breeding. They are both hateful, irresponsible acts…

  1. Came here as a result of your recent decision to subscribe to Learning from Dogs. Thank you so much for the ‘follow’. In fact, you pricked my conscious by you having an ad-free wordpress blog. I started 5 years ago allowing the ads because it offered a small income. But the income is pathetic and the ads annoy me big time! Going to go ‘ad-free’. So thank you for that as well.

    We have 9 dogs here at home in Southern Oregon, 6 of whom are rescue dogs. Plus a couple of rescue horses and 4 rescue cats. It will be a pleasure to follow your own writings and, please, feel very welcome if at any time you would like to guest post over on Learning from Dogs. Best wishes, Paul.

      Glad you have choosen to go ad free. Of course, I would love to send you a post. First I think I’ll campout for a while & enjoy reading & getting to know your community.
