Throughout October, and beyond, National Dog Adoption Month hopes to encourage more people to visit  and consider adopting a dog, while also debunking the myths surrounding dogs in rescues.

With over 6,000 dogs now waiting to be re-homed in rescue centres across the UK, the perfect dog for you is most likely sitting in a rescue centre waiting for you to find them.

National Dog Adoption Month runs until October 31st and is aimed at raising the profile of dog adoption by increasing the awareness of the many rescue dogs across the UK in need of a home.


Kim O’Meara, co-founder of the UK dog adoption site said:

“Throughout National Dog Adoption Month we hope to debunk the myths about rescue dogs being all damaged goods. Most dogs end up in care through no fault of their own and there are thousands up and down the country sitting, waiting and hoping for a home to call their own.”
