As one who’s adopted a shelter dog, I can tell you firsthand that there is no better feeling than bringing one of these wonderful animals into your home. And since October is American Humane Association’s Adopt-A-Dog Month , there’s no better time than the present to head to your local animal shelter and adopt a new companion.

You’ll find just about every dog (and cat) breed imaginable at a shelter—as well as some pretty unique mixed breeds—all in need of loving homes. If you prefer a specific breed, there are numerous online rescue organizations that specialize in individual breeds.

If you’re looking to do a something that will not only make you feel great inside, but will also potentially save a life, please adopt a dog or cat today.

Do you have an adoption story you’d like to share? We’d love to hear it in the comments section!
