October is Adopt a Shelter Pet Month
Did you know that October is adopt a shelter pet month? Why not go find a friend or two to keep you warm this winter?
Walkies supports adopting animals from all types of shelters, stray pets or partially feral animals. We believe in spreading the word about the need for a no kill nation through the banning of puppy mills, education,trap and release programs and lobbying our elected officials to speak on behalf of those who don’t have a voice. We support education programs to help improve the life of animals who are abandoned and left homeless due to one situation or another. We also support the adoption of older animals and the promotion of the great need for adopters who are open to animals with special needs.
We are located in Chicago where there are some phenomenal shelters doing great work for our four-legged friends in our city. Here are links to some of our favorite shelters, brought to you by PAWS, the largest no kill shelter in Chicago. Please consider adopting and making either a cash or in-kind donation to one or all of them. These shelters also need foster homes, volunteers and many need food donations for the animals they house and the pets who have been badly affected by the economy.
Please spread the word and be an advocate for the animals who can not speak for themselves. Thank you!
