Did you know October is Pet Adoption Month?  There are many dogs who need new loving homes, and this is the perfect time of year to adopt a dog!

Pet Adoption Month #PedigreeGives #cbias #shop

We have adopted both of our dogs from Animal Shelters.  Our older dog, Dodger, was adopted 9 years ago from the local dog pound.  Our new dog, Ziggy, was adopted in the spring from a dog rescue shelter.  We like to adopt shelter dogs because they need a home, and we need a furry friend, so it is a win-win.

Dodger and Ziggy #PedigreeGives #cbias #shopOur two dogs are very happy together.  Dodger has wanted a playmate for a while, and we wish we had gotten one a little sooner, because he tires out more quickly than Ziggy.  But if we had waited we wouldn’t have ended up with Ziggy, who is adorable.  Ziggy loves to cuddle, get his tummy rubbed and play fetch, and he chews everything.  Ziggy is not the brightest dog in the world, but he is very affectionate and loyal!

This Pet Adoption Month Pedigree is helping to feed shelter dogs.  When you purchase Pedigree dog products at Sam’s Club during October, the brand will donate one bowl of dog food to a shelter in need.  So you are not  only getting nutritious meals for your pet, but helping other pets too!  When my girls and I heard this we decided we had to get some Pedigree, and we headed to our local Sam’s Club to stock up.

Our Sam’s Club had huge bags Pedigree Dog Food along with boxes of Pedigree Dentastix treats.  The huge bags of food are useful now that we have two dogs, because they go through the food so quickly!  The Sam’s Club is located just 5 minutes away from the shelter we adopted Ziggy from, Helping Hounds Dog Rescue.  So we bought some Pedigree for Dodger and Ziggy, and some to donate to the shelter and headed right over to drop off our donations.

We noticed right away that we are not the only ones who were dropping off Pedigree food, since there was another bag right inside the door.

The staff opened up the Dentastix right way, and one of the doggies got to enjoy his sitting on a couch.

It was a rainy Saturday, so most of the dogs were inside, and thrilled to get attention.  My girls had to pet every dog in the place, and they loved when the dogs licked their faces.  I love dogs, but not licking my face!

The girls had fun picking out which type of dog they’d like to get when they finish college and move out on their own.  This was my 18 year old’s favorite dog, Austin, and lucky for him he was adopted that same day!

There were dogs of all ages and sizes, so it is possible to find the qualities you are looking for. The shelter has lots of helpful information too, about what the dog’s temperament, and how much exercise each one needs, so you can really find the perfect dog for your family.

So this month think about whether or not a shelter dog would enrich your family’s life.  The love and affection pets can give is priceless!

Have you ever adopted a shelter dog?

  1. We too adopted out little mutt — I wouldn’t trade him for anything! I got to take my son to the humane Society and now he’s all about buying the puppies “treats” but I’m ok sigh that!

  2. Thanks for sharing this post. I am very interested in this topic. I would like to share my opinion on this.But when this laws is turned down on that foundation; what about all the opposite legal guidelines these form of individuals break?

  3. Hi Everyone, thanks for your intrest, sorry it’s taken me so long to respond, I actually was hired to relocate a dog to CA. Fun trip and beautiful scenery.
    I started low at first $10 for 1/2 hour walk, then with a good clientele I raised the rate to $13 and lessen the time of walk to new customers. I did this after 3 years.
    I charge per walk.
    Advertising within your neighborhood or with a local vets was the best for me.
    Good luck to all.

  4. Hi, The fact that the Sphynx is a hairless cat is only a small part of why we are Sphynx lovers. Sphynx cats and Sphynx kittens have very unique personalities. I really do not consider myself an owner of Sphynx cats, because really, my Sphynx cats and Sphynx kittens own me! Sphynx cats and Sphynx kittens love their owners unconditionally. The Sphynx has so much love to give and is willing to love anyone that will allow them into their lives.Sphynx Cats

    We run with our dogs – I usually run with my German Shorthaired Pointer Rosemary and my husband runs with our Viszla Sage. Rosie is almost eight and I have ran off lead with her for about six years. She is old enough to know not to start out at a sprint She loves the fall weather right now and usually is a few steps ahead of me. But being a good puppy, she knows to slow down at streets or if people are coming.pet friendly restaurants

  6. I totally took an impromptu blogging vacation recently, too! It’s really nice to get to live out in the world without Frenchie feeling tethered for a while Having lots of new things to write about Frenchie it always a plus, too! It sounds like you had a great time visiting with family and friends. Hope your eye is feeling better!

  7. Wonderful!!!! My husband was skeptical but this changed his mind. We had to use a little gas grill so we wanted something that cooked quickly. This worked great! I didn’t have time to make pico de gallo so I drained some Rotel with the same ingredients (lime, cilantro, etc) and used it. Worked great! Thank you so much for sharing this! We WILL use it again.cheap pomeranian puppies for sale

  12. Strategic Management are the broad primary outcomes towards which effort and actions are directed in a business. They are whats, not hows and a business might have multiple goals to achieve. For example, “we must be a leader player and increase our share in the home loan market”. Normally there is no measurement in the definition of a goal and only gives you the general direction of the company.
