Adopt A Shelter Animal This Month!

Adopt A Shelter Animal This Month!

October is Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month! But that doesn't mean only dogs should be adopted, spread your love around and adopt a cat too! 

This is a special blog post celebrating the #AdoptDontShop message. Adopting a rescued animal is socially responsible, personally gratifying, and makes the world a better place.

Here are a few reasons why you should adopt your next best friend.

We have several formulas that can make the adoption process smoother on you and your new friend such as Stress Stopper, which is great for unusual or stressful situations like moving and having visitors over, helping them feel grounded and protected. Changing Times is used when adjusting to major life changes like being adopted, moving or a new roommate. 

Depending on what you know about your new friend's history you may want to go with something more specific. Here is a short list.

We know this can be overwhelming so we are always available to help you choose the right formula for your situation. Email us at or use this form and we will get back to you as soon as possible with our advice. 

We also have a few articles written by Jackson Galaxy on introducing animals to new spaces, and introducing them to each other. Take a look here:

We hope this helps you decide to adopt a new best friend this October!
