October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and we’ve teamed up with shelters all across the country to bring attention to homeless dogs with our #FindYourFido campaign. Who is Fido, you ask? Fido could be any dog, in any shelter, in any city or town. Fido could be big or small, fluffy or sleek, lazy or playful—but most importantly, every Fido needs a home.

How can you help? We’re calling on animal lovers everywhere to post photos of their favorite dog or a current shelter dog on their social media channels using the hashtag #FindYourFido. You can also use our special Fido photo filter to show you care. Together, we can show the world just how great adoption is and bring attention to the 3.3 million shelter dogs in the country looking for homes. Whether you are looking to adopt, or want to become an ambassador for Fidos in need of homes, below are a few ways you can participate!

Special thanks to our media partner, The Dodo and proud sponsor, Nylabone, for their unwavering commitment to helping homeless dogs find loving homes!
