The effect that pets have on our lives is immeasurable – they provide us with love, comfort, happiness and a true sense of belonging. They change our lives for the better, and all they ask in return is to be cared for … and for the occasionally tasty treat.
So on this National Change a Pet’s Life Day, we ask you, a community of animal lovers, to join us in returning the favor – let’s change a pet’s life, together.
Check out some of the ways that you can take part in this day of celebration!
Lots of pets of all shapes, sizes, and ages are looking for their forever-homes.
Hesitant to adopt? Take a dog home for a 48 sleepover! Test the waters to see if they are a good fit in your home. If you decide to adopt, wonderful! If not, that’s okay! The time spent out of the shelter will help us get to know the pet that much better!
Learn more about our adoption process here.
Can’t adopt? Consider fostering! Not only does it allow us to offer lifelines to even more pets in need, but also allows for a pet to find their perfect-match from the comforts of a real home!

Have a day filled with furry fun while giving a homeless dog a break from the shelter environment!
You could go for a hike, hang out at the park or maybe just snuggle on the couch. We have a list of suggested local destinations for inspiration – but you can plan your dog-friendly day however you choose!
