October is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month

adopt-a-shelter-dog-monthAdopt A Shelter Dog Month is an annual event to encourage people to save lives and enhance their own lives by adopting a dog from a shelter. At Dallas Animal Services, we have more than 100 dogs available for immediate adoption on any given day, with hundreds more available for pre-adoption. Before leaving our facility, all dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, and in celebration of Adopt-A-Shelter Dog, all dog adoption fees are reduced to just $20.

Even if you can’t adopt, you can still help celebrate by donating, volunteering, sharing an adoptable dog from our Facebook page, and by encouraging everyone you know to please spay/neuter their pets.
