National Mutt Day (Dec 2nd) is a great opportunity to help out your local shelters here in San Antonio! The Holiday Season is a time where we try to be kind and help others less fortunate then us. It’s also a time for gift giving. Instead of buying a pet from a breeder, adopt! If you can’t adopt you can donate to any of these great organizations here in San Antonio.
Adopt A Shelter Pet For National Mutt Day
What more fitting way to honor mutts than by adopting one from a shelter for National Mutt Day! During this hectic holiday season it can be difficult to stop and think about what is going on around us. We’re all surrounded by our family and our friends but what about these shelter pets? They’re probably lonely and overwhelmed. You can volunteer your time, efforts, money, and of course you can adopt if you are able. These are all great ways to support local shelters who are working hard to make sure these animals find the loving, supportive, forever homes that they deserve! Shopping from breeders can seem easier and maybe more fun because you get a little baby, but adopting a shelter pet is saving a life! You can give these sweet guys and gals a new lease on life and a second chance!
If you are not able to adopt for yourself or someone else, think about sharing their information on social media. That exposure could end up helping to find one of these great pets a home and it costs you nothing but a few clicks!
