National Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month

Shelter DogOctober is generally accepted as "National Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month", where pet businesses make an extra effort to encourage Americans to adopt a lonely dog instead of buying a puppy.

(Besides, you can find puppies at shelters also)

Most dogs in shelters are happy healthy animals who were guilty of nothing more than being unloved. Making matters worse, is that they don't have long to live, with many shelters killing dogs in a matter of days.

Animal rights groups like PETA don't help out either, offering to do the killing for shelters, instead of using their money to provide care and love.

If you've been wanting a dog, please visit your local animal shelter and give a four-legged furry friend another chance at life. I adopted two dogs myself, a beagle and a terrier-mix.

I know of two "no-kill" shelters in Menifee and Sun City...

Menifee Valley Humane Society
(951) 246-7960

Sun City K9 Adoptions
(951) 679-6444

Southland Collie Rescue
(562) 697-5815

If there are any other shelters or rescues in the Menifee Valley, contact me, or post a comment, and I'll add it here.


  1. I'd just like to say, I agree with Steve...there are many wonderful pets waiting to be son works for the Sun City K9 Dog rescue and there are so many dogs..many already housebroken and obediance trained....occasionally they get puppies also so if you are thinking of a canine companion, please consider one of these worthwhile organizations...they also greatly need donations, either money or dog food, blankets, etc.

  2. Please Note: Menifee Valley Humane Society is an all volunteer animal rescue group and we foster animals in our homes until they are adopted. We do not have a physical shelter and are limited as to what we can take in. We are non profit and function soley from donations. Thank You
