According to the ASPCA, "around 3.3 million dogs enter U.S. shelters each year. With October being Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, the ASPCA just launched our #FindYourFido initiative for the second year in a row to raise awareness about dog adoption."
So, who is Fido? Fido is a cardboard cut-out who is an ambassador
just waiting to help spread the word about shelter and rescue dogs! You can visit the ASPCA page HERE and download an image of Fido to pose with your pets, or go with you to the pet food store, join you and your pups on a visit to the park, or better yet, take Fido with you to your local shelter and take a photo of him with some of the dogs just waiting for loving families to come adopt them. You can share your pics with #FindYourFido for all to see where you and Fido have been!
According to the ASPCA, in New York City, "The ASPCA is collaborating with popular entities like NYPD and City Hall to act as 'virtual fosters' to get Fido out into the community doing various activities like seeing a Broadway show, riding in an NYPD squad car, admiring the view atop the Empire State Building, etc. Around the country, the ASPCA is working with various animal shelters to join the #FindYourFido campaign. Hundreds of animal shelters have signed up to participate in the #FindYourFido campaign to increase the digital exposure of their adoptable dogs. Many of them will also be hosting Fido-themed adoption events this month to help more dogs find loving homes."

Meet Athena! "A puppy should always live a playful, happy life. However, that was not the case with Athena. She endured physical abuse and neglect from the beginning. Athena has not had any training to bring out the best in her, so she needs a patient Northern Breed savvy adopter. Someone who can help with teaching her the basics. Despite what Athena has endured, she is a very sweet girl, a big talker, and loves to follow her person and stay close. Athena is not good with little dogs or cats but is great with older kids. Athena, who is 1, deserves a loving family that will give her the time and attention she needs and deserves. If you're that special person, open your heart and show Athena what unconditional love really is." ~Forever Husky
