Adopt a Dog

Looking for someone to cuddle with on cool Fall evenings? This handsome senior citizen is called Shadow. His expression seems to radiate a sweet confidence, as though he knows there's someone out there who wants to take him home and love him forever. 

Shadow is one of many dogs at Five Acres Animal Shelter (formerly St. Charles Humane Society) in St. Charles, Missouri looking for a permanent and happy home. Check them out. You could discover just the furry face you've been waiting to find!

Indy woofed for me to remind everyone that October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. What a great time to rescue a pet! If, however, you can't adopt, consider helping your local shelter in other ways. They can use volunteers, pet food, toys, and towels. And to pay all those vet bills, monetary donations are always welcome. 

 We hope you and your furry best friends are having the same beautiful weather we are.  Low humidity, warm sunny days, and comfortably cool nights.

Don't you just love Fall?

Shadow is adorable. He really is a handsome pooch. I'll keep my fingers crossed for him that he finds his forever home soon.

I'd adopt him in a nanosecond if I could! Older dogs are the very best.

Awwww, Pat! You're killin' us dog lovers! If only we could take every one who needs a home!

What a little cutie stinker. If I know anyone looking for a pooch, I'll let them know. My Smeagol tolerated a kitty for a while, but I don't think would handle a doggie!

OMC - what a cutie Shadow is. I thought she was a puppy - can't believe she's a senior citizen.

Hoping Shadow finds the perfect forever home in time for cold, cozy days!
