Adopt A Shelter Dog This October

Our American Fork Veterinarian Team Loves Pet Adoption! Celebrate ASPCA's Adopt a Shelter Dog Month This October

All around the country, millions of adorable animals are being housed in shelters awaiting their forever family! Sadly, many puppies and dogs never find a loving family to give them a good home. At the Utah Veterinary Hospital, our American Fork veterinarian team stands proudly behind the ASPCA's Adopt a Shelter Dog Month every October because we believe it is so important and special to take care of these wonderful and forgotten canines.

The Importance of Pet Adoption

Pet adoption is humane and economical. Instead of spending thousands of dollars for a bred animal, you can adopt a wonderful, loving, and sweet dog for a fraction of the cost. Plus, adoption fees go to supporting your local shelters.

Shelter staff and volunteers play a huge role in protecting animals and your community. Their efforts help rescue animals from situations of abuse or neglect, minimize the occurrence of strays and feral dogs and cats, and help control pet overpopulation through low-cost spay and neuter.

The dog, the community, and you—when you adopt a dog, everybody wins!
