Adopt a Shelter Dog Month
Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, League City Pets Alive will be participating
ASPCA®’s (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®)
national #FindYour Fido initiative which is focused on harnessing social
media to expand the
awareness of adoptable shelter dogs and help them find safe and loving
To encourage local residents
to #FindYourFido, League City Pets Alive will have $20 adoptions for adult dogs
throughout the month of October. In addition, LCPA will be posting “Find This
Fido” signs around the City which feature dogs available for adoption. Local
businesses can participate by having a photograph taken in front of their
business which features a shelter dog available for adoption. Contact Jasmine
O’Keefe at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more details.
The ASPCA estimates that approximately 3.3 million
dogs enter U.S. animal shelters every year, where they sit waiting to be
adopted into a loving home. One of those dogs waiting for a forever home is
Ford. Ford came to LCPA beaten and broken down due to possible dog fighting. He
was timid and scared of affection. Fortunately, due to donations and the Dog
Day Getaway program, where anyone can take a dog out on a day trip, LCPA was
able to heal and rehabilitate Ford, who is now one of the sweetest and most
loveable dogs at the shelter.
League City Pets Alive is encouraging people to
participate in the ASPCA’s #FindYourFido campaign by:
- Becoming a digital ambassador. Simply share profiles of
adoptable dogs from the LCPA website www.leaguecity.com/lcpavolunteer
or Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/leaguecityanimalshelter/
on your social media channels.
in the LCPA Dog Day Getaway program and checking a shelter dog out for a
day trip. Take them to local dog-friendly places such as restaurants,
businesses, or just a walk in the park and give them a break from the
stressful shelter atmosphere. LCPA’s goal is to get 20-day trips during
the month of October.
