Our pets are part of our families. Let’s be honest, we’ve all skipped on that extra shot at Starbucks to make sure we can afford a special treat for our pooch. However, not all dogs have forever homes and are desperately looking to find their adoption hero.

October is National Adopt a Dog month, so if you’ve been considering adopting your new BFF, this is a great time to do so. If you can’t accommodate a dog into your home, you can still purchase gifts for your pet owning friends that give back to pups in need.

If you do already have a dog, they’ll surely ruv all of these toys and treats.
