Adopt A Shelter Dog Month

According to the ASPCA approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. To put that into perspective that number is larger then the population of Maryland and Washington DC combined! The worst part is that over the duration of one year approximately 2.7 million of those companion animals will be put down.
