October “National Adopt A Shelter Dog Month”

Atlanta Pet Rescue and Adoption (APRA), is a non-profit, no-kill shelter dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating dogs and cats so they can be adopted into safe and loving forever homes year-round, but the month of October is set aside to focus awareness on the importance of controlling the pet population and reducing the amount of euthanized healthy, adoptable animals in animal control facilities.
October is “National Adopt A Shelter Dog Month,” and APRA is offering adoption promotions throughout the entire month. APRA focuses specifically on the following areas to help promote pet adoption:

  • Acquiring 75-80% of our population from high kill rate animal control facilities, giving them a second chance at life
  • Spaying/neutering all acquired animals
  • Providing immediate and proper medical care before adoption
  • Providing education on responsible pet ownership to all adopters
  • Careful interviewing to ensure each pet is placed in a home that meets its needs
  • A pre-adoption training regimen for dogs to ensure they are forever home-ready
  • Enriching the lives of cats to enhance their shelter stay
