Hartz®, one of the country's leading suppliers of flea and tick preventative products, is proud to support Adopt a Shelter Dog Month throughout October. Each year, thousands of dogs are brought into animal shelters and rescue groups across the country and caring for these animals can be a monumental task for organizations that are typically fueled by volunteers and charitable donations. For prospective pet owners and animal lovers alike, Adopt a Shelter Dog Month is a wonderful time to lend a helping hand to these organizations, and any kind of assistance will be appreciated.
The easiest way to help out a local animal shelter in one's community is to adopt a pet! Providing veterinary care, food, a clean space to live and other factors can put a serious drain on a rescue group's budget, so this could be one of the easiest ways for individuals to help out. Dogs from animal shelters are typically well socialized and prospective owners can learn about the dog's prior history before adopting.
In addition to adopting a dog, those who already have a canine of their own can support their local animal shelters in a variety of ways. Rescue groups are always in need of donations of food, cleaning products, paper towels, old linens, toys and anything else that can help improve the lives of the shelter animals. Additionally, animal lovers can spread the word on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter or even write an op-ed in their local newspapers to spread the word and remind their friends, family and communities about the wonderful work that animal shelters do for pets in need.
Last but not least, volunteering one's time at a local animal shelter is always a wonderful way to support groups and ease the burden on full-time employees. Hartz® is encouraging pet owners and animal lovers alike to do their part during Adopt a Shelter Dog Month to give back to the organizations that do so much to support the furry friends in their communities. Hartz® routinely makes in-kind donations to shelters and rescues throughout the United States. Shelters and rescues can reach out to Hartz® via their Facebook donation tab.
