Adopt-A-Dog Month

Adveture Dog 575x200 WEB


October is Adopt-A-Dog Month and if you’re considering a new canine addition to the family, now couldn't be a better time to adopt.

We're celebrating in three big ways!

First, we have special retail items to enhance all of your adventures for sale at PAWS Companion Animal Shelter in Lynnwood and PAWS Cat City in Seattle. The best part? All proceeds benefit animals at PAWS. Whether you’re adopting from PAWS for the first time or you already have an awesome Adventure Dog of your own who needs cool stuff, PAWS is your place to shop.

Second, we're showcasing Adventure Dogs and sharing ideas for four-legged fun, four seasons long!

  • Visit our Adventure Dog Facebook album of Adventure Dogs owned by PAWS staff and volunteers. Be sure to upload pictures or video of your own Adventure Dog to our Facebook page.
  • Check out It's a great website to visit for pet travel information and tips on things to do and places to visit nationwide with your Adventure Dog. Find dog-friendly hotels, vacation rentals, restaurants, parks, campgrounds, beaches, shopping, activities, events, and services. 
  • and offer adventure tips and information specifically for the Seattle area.

Third, we're spotlighting adventurous, adoptable dogs in our Featured Pets all month long. These are active and curious dogs selected by our adoption experts who will make excellent Adventure Dog companions.

Finally, we'd like to invite you to our Shelter Open House Day on Saturday, October 6.  This annual event, taking place in animal shelters across Washington, is designed to get hundreds of homeless dogs adopted in one day.
