It's Adopt a Dog month for the entire month of October, and we're going to bring you the faces of cute pooches that you can find locally in Sherman Oaks.
Many shelters and rescues (and there are a lot locally) are providing an added incentive, all adoption fees will be 20% off for the entire month. With the normal fee of $110, a qualified adopter can get a free health exam, complementary spaying or neutering, and a free bag of Science Diet dog food for only $88.
Do you want to help at Patch?
We're looking people willing to post stories about dogs and cats available for adoption locally. It's very easy to do, and the photos are taken. You do not have to write, but you can if you wish, and you do not have to take photos (although again, if you want to, you can!) You would be posting stories like this and this.
Just contact MikeS@patch.com and let us know if you're already involved in a rescue, and we can help you get started posting the potential pet pictures, and get these pups adopted!
If you have adopted a pet please post your photo or video in our GALLERY above (top right) and tell us your story
