Celebrate Adopt a Shelter Dog Month with Reduced Dog Adoption Fees at the ASPCA

It’s Adopt a Shelter Dog Month (ASDM), and we’re rooting for our adorable dogs at the ASPCA Adoption Center to find loving homes this October. That’s why we’re offering reduced adoption fees all month long: $40 for dogs who weigh more than 40 pounds.

At the ASPCA, we’re firm believers that large dogs rock. Here are a few super-sized pups at our Adoption Center who would love to meet you:


Hazel is a super-smart dog who already knows Sit and Down! She’d love to have you teach her other tricks. Hazel is very affectionate with her inner circle of human friends at the Adoption Center, and enjoys daily running exercise. She’d to best with an experienced adopter in a home with teens-and-up. Visit Hazel’s profile page to learn more.

Dalmatian with red blanket draped on her


Bonnie is a sweet and affectionate pup, especially around her favorite people! Once she gets to know you, she’ll stick by your side like glue. This special girl would love to be the center of attention and would do best in an adults-only household. Visit Bonnie’s profile to learn more.

Brown and white pit bull with tennis ball in her mouth


Frieda loves everyone she meets! She is very energetic, and enjoys plenty of daily exercise. Frieda enjoys saying “hello” to polite dogs. This smart dog already knows “Sit!” We think she’d do best in a home with kids 10-and-up. Visit Frieda’s profile page to learn more.

White and tan pit bull with spots

These three cuties are just a few of many. Check out our Adopt section to see more adoptable dogs at our New York City Adoption Center.
