National Shelter Pet Adoption Day Events 2017

In honor of the National Shelter Pet Adoption Day, here is a quick overview of some of the larger pet adoption events across the country which are put on by some incredible organizations.  You may also want to check with your local shelter and/or rescue organizations to see if they are hosting special adoption events this weekend and in the next few weeks.  You may also recall that for the June 2016 Adopt-A-Cat Month we posted a list of reasons to adopt/rescue instead of buying. Most of the reasons listed for cats also apply to your next new canine fur baby!

For additional inspiration to adopt or rescue your next canine companion, check out these quotes on how wonderful adopting a mutt can be!
