October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month:#31DaysOfRescueDogs


 October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and with millions of dogs entering shelters each year, the ASPCA is hoping to raise awareness about how great adoptable pups can be.  They have launched #31DaysOfRescueDogs, a social media campaign to raise funds for homeless pets. Participants will be asked to post one photo of their favorite rescue every day, and each post will encourage their friends to donate $1 a day in exchange for 31 days of adorable photos. The featured dogs could be rescues, fosters, or shelter pups in need of homes. Each post should contain the hashtag #31DaysofRescueDogs for the chance to win prizes and be featured on Pit Bulls and Parolees. Users can visit www.aspca.org/31days to learn more and sign up.


The ASPCA is also hosting a #TricksOrTreats HOWLoween Twitter Trivia Party on Tuesday, October 25th at 2pm EST. There will be lots of spooky trivia and treats, and prizes!! Register here!!!
