October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month
Our local shelters are the perfect place to find your next forever furry friend and there is no better time to do it than this October during Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. By adopting from your local shelter, you give your new pet a second chance at a happy home. You also help save the life of another pet by making room in the shelter for a pet from another high-kill or overcrowded shelter elsewhere.
This summer and fall's natural disasters have put extra strain on our shelters. Oregon Humane Society and our other local shelters take in pets from other area shelters to help them absorb pets lost and suffering from the fires and storms. If you can't adopt, please consider donating to our local humane society and rescue organizations. After 150 years, Oregon Humane society is celebrating its next chapter with a Day of Giving on October 4th.
The shelter will send your new pet home with a starter kit, but there are some additional things to pick up that will make your new cat or dog's transition to your home smoother. Calming treats will relax them and make introducing new things and people less stressful to them. Pheromone room sprays will help your new pet feel more relaxed in their new home.
At Nature's Pet Market, we celebrate your pets every day. Stop in and see our large inventory of the finest natural pet products available.
