October: Shelter Pet Awareness Month!

Ahhh, October. A shift in seasons that can bring many changes into our homes. Warmer clothes, nights spent by the fire, plotting your couples or kids halloween costume with … your dog (a blog post on this coming soon). But another thing that October brings into our homes is Adopt a Shelter Pet Month.

Adopt a Shelter Pet Month

During Adopt a Shelter Pet Month, sponsored by ASPCA, we have the opportunity to educate our communities on shelter animals as well as help homeless animals in shelters find their forever home.

At Bow Wow Labs, we believe that every single pet deserves the chance to be safe, happy and healthy. Whether that’s with a big family, a couple, or an individual looking for that extra companionship, every environment fostering a loving home for a pet in need is one we stand behind.

We know that for many of you, your home is already filled with animals. So what can you do to help those in need even if you don’t have space for a new furry friend in your house?


Join the Shelter Pet Adoption Month conversation on social media. Through ASPCA’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, you can join the #31DaysofRescueDogs movement to raise $1 a day during the month of October. That $31.00 might not seem like a lot, but every little bit helps provide food and shelter to those pups in need.

Give What You Can

If adopting a dog yourself is not an option, give a gift to ASPCA. Skip the mocha latte a couple days this week, and use that extra cash to make a donation in order to support rescues and adoption programs in getting dogs off the streets, bettering their lives and the lives of humans around them.
