Shelters are an important part of our pet communities that help make new families every day. For many shelters across the country summer can be a time of chaos, with kennels being at full capacity. To help pets find new homes many shelters participate in annual "Clear the Shelter" events in August.
Clear the Shelter events often feature a discount on adoption fees and working with the press to get the stories out about the wonderful animals they have available.
Adopting a dog from a shelter is a great choice, allowing you to give a second chance to a deserving animal, and providing you with unconditional love! Most dogs from shelters will come spayed or neutered, and up to date on their vaccinations.
Remember, if you do adopt it may take up to three months for your new canine companion to fully relax and become "at home" with you. To ease that transition, consider our Bedtime Bones, which are tasty and organic!
