Because I am an animal lover....

October is American Humane Societies Adopt-A-Dog Month, and it is a perfect time to help out the homeless dogs of Alabama-or where ever you live- by adopting one yourself, volunteering your time, or making a donation to the Humane Society of your area. Remember, hundreds of homeless animals are counting on you.
During the month of October, The Greater Birmingham Humane Society has a special. Because it is adopt a dog month, canine adoption fees will be reduced. Dogs over 15 pounds and 6 months or older will only be $50. All pups under 6 months of age and adult dogs under 15 pounds will only be $100. In addition to these special adoption fees, all adopters will receive an exciting gift bag at the time of adoption. Contact the GBHS at 205.942.1211 or for additional details.
This Saturday the GBHS is hosting a Shower for the Shelter. The GBHS shelter is located at 300 Snow Drive, off of West Oxmoor Road. This family-friendly event will be from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Activities will include: Games and Prizes, Moonwalk, Refreshments, Bake Sale, Clowns &More!
Party guests are asked to bring a gift for the homeless pets of Birmingham. See the wish lists at or All kids are encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costumes!
Not to leave out the Shelby Humane Society, The Pet Walk to benefit Shelby Humane Society will take place soon! The event will be held Saturday, November 17, 2007 at Veterans Park in Hoover.The walk will kickoff Hoover's annual Petapalooza which will feature, live entertainment, food, contests and mobile adoptions! Make your walk benefit the homeless pets at SHS by creating a personal fundraising site to collect sponsorships. Registration & online fundraising is quick & easy! For more information visit or
So get out and support your local humane society and have some fun while doing it. I know that because of these 2 shelter's I acquired three special animals that made a huge impact on my life and continually give me unconditional love. Make a difference in the life of a pet-as well as your own.
