Adopt a Shelter Dog Month: PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin’!

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and with Super Smiley, Angel (our German Shepherd), two horses and a cat all being adopted, Smiley and I are especially passionate about this topic!  And the PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin’ program is totally rocking this mission. Did you know that Sergeant’s Pet Care Products is a sponsor of this wonderful organization?

Pic 2The PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin’ program focuses on relocating dogs from over-populated shelters to high-demand shelters. Since its inception 10 years ago, the Rescue Waggin’ program has saved more than 70,000 dogs, provided funding for more than two million spay/shelter surgeries and transported more than 60,000 dogs to high-demand shelters.

My first pet came from a shelter and I’ve been adopting ever since. When we adopt, we save a life, and those pets are oh-so grateful. They will pay you back a thousand times over with more love than you can imagine. When I look into my adopted dogs’ eyes, I know they know I saved them, and they rescue me right back every day.

Shelter dogs go on to be therapy dogs that enhance lives, service dogs that save lives and military dogs that protect our troops. Shelter dogs are so very special and are right there just waiting for their new family to come take them home.

Super Smiley here now! I was thrown away two times and I am soooooo grateful to have my family. I remember being in the Pic 1shelter. They took really good care of me, but I wanted a home with my own person. Thank you, thank you to everyone who adopts a dog this month and every month! You will be sooo rewarded. We will love you forever.

I was so grateful to be adopted that I wanted to paw it forward and help other shelter pets find homes, too. So I created The Super Smiley Flash Mob 4 Pet Adoption to energize pet adoption! It’s the Happy Campaign that has been touring the whole country spreading the word about these amazing pets!

When you bring your new dog home, you may have some questions; and we have some answers!

Does your new dog seem a little disoriented in his new environment? How can you help your new dog feel welcomed in his new home and reinforce good behaviors? Yummy treats can do the trick.

What about accidents during house breaking and training? Try Clean Up Ultra and Pheromone stain remover with enzymes and pheromone technology to help with housebreaking and proven to help modify behavior like inappropriate marking.

Your new dog is all cleaned up and ready to go home and his teeth are so white. How do you keep ‘em that way? I think this toothbrush and dental care whitening kit is pretty cool.

It’s simple; the PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin’ program has it right. Buying from a breeder just doesn’t make sense when so many pets are waiting for homes.

Or to put it my way, like my song says:

The coolest thing you can do…
Is get a Thrown Away Dog.
Mutts Rock!  It’s True!

Adopt a Dog! Don’t go to the store.
There’re millions like me!
Why help make more???

I’m Smiley The Dog, I’m Super Smiley…
