Be Our Hero in DOGtober

DOGtober- Be Our Hero in October - Special Pals

October is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, and the gang at Special Pals is hoping you’ll join us this DOGtober to set us up for a strong finish to 2018! Here are all the ways you can be our hero this month…


It was a busy summer, and many of our pals are still waiting for that perfect family to find them. It’s a great time to visit us if you have been thinking about adding four paws to your family!

Consider visiting with some of our long-term residents and our Hurricane Harvey rescues – they have all been at Special Pals for more than one year and it is time they finally went HOME!


We are always grateful for the support of our friends and neighbors! Help set us up for cozy winter months by cleaning out your cupboards and donating old towels and linens to Special Pals.

We are also in need of high-quality dog food like Iams and Nutro this DOGtober. Check out our Amazon wish list for more donation ideas for our doggos.

Support Us!

Special Pals is attending the Best Friends Strut Your Mutt Walk on Saturday, October 13, 2018. You don’t have to get out and walk to support our team – learn more about how you can help!

We would love to see your smiling face at some of our events this October – check out our events calendar!
