October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. Bring Your New Best Friend Home Today!

Nov 1, 2017

Interested in adopting a dog in the Naperville area? Get started by visiting one of these local shelters where you’ll meet lots of sweet pups waiting for someone like you to give them the love and safe forever home they deserve.

And remember, while October is National Adopt a Shelter Dog month, the need for adopters/fosters, volunteers and donations is constant year round. If you can’t adopt a dog, there are many ways you can still help and make an impact. Consider sponsoring a dog to help with care costs, donate pet supplies (check the site first to see what’s needed most), volunteer your time at a shelter or participate in a fundraising/adoption event. These organizations depend on community support and every bit of assistance helps!
