ASPCA’s Adopt a Shelter Dog Month in October From Urgent Pet Care

At Urgent Pet Care, our Papillion veterinarian offers the complete range of services your pet needs at all stages of life. This includes emergency and urgent care at either of our Papillion or Millard offices. And with October being ASPCA’s “Adopt a Shelter Dog Month” coming up, we also thought this would be a fitting time to spread awareness of the benefits of pet adoption.

Consider Pet Adoption This October

The ASPCA hosts and celebrates “Adopt a Shelter Dog” month every October, with the purpose of this event being to help dogs in shelters all across the country find the loving homes they deserve. If you’ve been considering pet adoption for yourself, this would be a great time to visit your local shelter and consider bringing home a dog that needs your love, care, and commitment. Many shelters even host special adoption events throughout this month, including free and discounted adoptions.

Even if you’re not in a position to adopt a dog for yourself, you could still celebrate this October by sponsoring a dog’s adoption fee or donating to a local shelter. Anything you can do to improve the life of a shelter dog can make a huge difference.

If you do end up adopting a dog during “Adopt a Shelter Dog” month, you can count on our team of veterinarians to provide your dog with the preventative, wellness, and other care services he or she may need at various stages of life. This includes everything from routine annual health exams and vaccinations to screenings, diagnosis, and treatment for any number of illnesses and injuries.
