Your new best friend is waiting to meet you at your local animal shelter.  October is Adopt A Shelter Dog month.  The ASPCA sponsors this event, and encourages you to "Make Pet Adoption Your First Option."

There are several local shelters where you can adopt a dog.  Here are just a few from around the Greater Flint area:

Last Chance Animal Rescue.

Adopt A Pet.

Paws Animal Rescue.

Paradise Animal Rescue (Lapeer County).

There are a lot of great dogs and cats out there that need a home.  Your best buddy is anxiously waiting to meet you!  Adopt a shelter pet.
