October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month!

Shelter dogs are exceptional! Toby, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever who was adopted by Charmaine Hammond and her husband from an animal rescue organization and later found his purpose as an Animal Assisted Therapy Dog. At first, Toby was not what you would categorize as a dog lovers dream; he destroyed everything in his path, had quirky habits that included demolishing toilet tank lids and closets and did everything in his power to get himself sent back to his rescue organization. Something magical happened when Charmaine realized that Toby (even though he was a dog) needed purpose and focus in his life and redirected his boundless energy into becoming a therapy dog and leaving pawprints on people's hearts around the globe. Charmaine Hammond wrote a book, On Toby's Terms, about Toby's journey which is a best seller, award winning and now being turned into a major motion picture.

Toby is only one story of the amazing dogs that are adopted from shelters and rescue organizations everyday across the world. October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month.This month-long observance encourages animal lovers across the nation to raise awareness about the positive aspects of adopting a pet from a local shelter.Your local animal shelter is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality each one waiting for a caring home. Like Toby, some shelter dogs can be trained to learn animal-assisted therapy. They also make great exercise partners, a confidant for your shy child, a companion for a senior citizen, etc.

Charmaine Hammond will be honoring Adopt a Shelter Dog Month on her radio show, PAWSitive Radio, on Blog Talk Radio heard weekly on Saturdays at 2 pm PST where she interviews animal organizations and experts on many subjects benefiting you and your pet.
