The Humane Society of Greenwood and Greenwood County Animal Shelter are celebrating National Adopt-A-Dog Month this October. They are asking prospective pet owners the question: What can an adopted dog bring to your life?
“There are as many responses to that question as there are dogs in this world,” said Karen Pettay, Humane Society Executive Director. “Whether you want an exercise buddy, a best friend for your child, a partner in agility competitions, a constant companion for an aging parent or simply a fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work, an adopted dog can be all of these – and more. Adopt-A-Dog Month is the perfect time for people to adopt a shelter dog and experience the joy of finding their own answers.”
During the month of October, dog adoption fees are reduced to $65. (Senior and “special needs” dogs are $50.) All dogs are vetted: spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, dewormed, and microchipped.
The Greenwood County Animal Shelter has dogs of every type, size, age and personality waiting for loving homes. Visit the Animal Shelter during October at 235 Wilbanks Circle, Greenwood, SC, or the Humane Society website at gwdhumanesociety.org to see adoptable dogs. The Shelter’s adoption hours are Monday through Saturday, 10a to 5p.
