October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month!

What better time than now to march down to your local shelter and take home a canine in need? A new dog can greatly improve your life, like:

• help you get outside and exercise
• provide companionship for you and your family
• provide protection from intruders
• improve your mood
• provide assistance for people with disabilities

But if you can't take in an animal, don't worry, there are ways you can still help! Consider fostering animals who are looking for homes, volunteering at your local shelter, or making a donation to a shelter or animal care organization.  I often donate my used blankets to the shelter as well as dog food.

You can help too!  Here are a few local resources in the Thurston County/Olympia Area:
