When we adopt a dog we think we're doing it a favor, giving it a home.  What do they give us in return?  It has been proven that pets can make us happier and healthier people.  They give us companionship and loyalty and acceptance.  What a bargain!

If you wonder how you can help the pets in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, the answer is to make a donation to one of the many organizations that are working in the storm area.    And consider adopting a pet.  Every animal that is adopted from a shelter or rescue group makes room and gives another animal a chance to be adopted!

October is Adopt-a-Dog Month, and Ragsby's story is a perfect illustration of the great dogs who just need the opportunity to show somebody what great pets and companions they can become, if only they are given the chance.  

If you're looking for a canine companion, visit your local shelter or rescue group.  You won't change the world by adopting a pet but you will change the world for your new furry friend - and you just might find your world is better, too.

There are lots of good reasons for adopting a dog, especially during October, which is Adopt-a-Dog Month.  There are also lots of good reasons for supporting Alabama Public Radio - and surprisingly the reasons are very similar.  Either way you get a faithful friend!

Probably one of the things that makes dogs so appealing to us humans is that they have a natural smile.  That and the fact that they make such great companions!


The month of October is Adopt-a-Dog Month. To help celebrate the occasion, let’s consider the American Humane Association’s list of the Top Ten Reasons To Adopt A Dog From Your local animal shelter or animal rescue group.

Number ten on the list - You’ll never have to sweep your kitchen floor again.
