5 Shelter Dogs You Can Adopt Right Now

There are a few things in life we're especially thankful for — such as tequila. And sunshine! And definitely puppies. Since October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog month, we're celebrating our love of dogs by helping those in search of forever homes find a family.

We’ll continue to share information on adoptable dogs throughout the month, so if you don’t find your new bestie here today, your perfect companion may be on a future list.

Still not motivated to rescue one of these sweet pups? Consider this: It’s not drinking alone if the dog is home.
