Fall is in the air, and like harvest’s bounty, Spot is overflowing with good things!

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and our newest crew member, Account Exec Lori Cory, said, “Let’s do something cool with this!”  She brought in Holistic Pet Center and Natura Pet Foods, and together we’re offering a chance for families who adopt a dog in October to win six months of free, top-quality dog food. Details below!  Give me a shout if you have questions.  We can’t wait to meet your new best friend!

Spot has also teamed with 99.5 The Wolf Radio to kick off the holiday season with a fun costume contest for great prizes.  This partnership’s built for fun — stay tuned to Spot, 99.5 The Wolf, 105.1 The Buzz, and all the Entercom stations for more pet fun coming your way!

On a more serious note, don’t miss “Breaking Bad” this issue, Michele Coppola’s report on a collaboration of Washington County agencies taking on animal abuse and domestic violence.  We’re so proud of everyone involved in this ground-breaking work.  This is history in the making, sure to bless countless lives for years to come.

Another new treasure is ACT, Daniela Iancu’s “Animal Community Talks” program, fostering the connection among those working in veterinary, behavior and animal welfare with education and networking.  Read about it here, and get to the next session — they’re free, they’re fantastic, and they’re listed in the FunPlanner.

Finally, meet 5-year-old Michael at this link, who — along with his mom — in working to cope with the loss of his family’s beloved Golden, Lucy, created quite the publishing empire . . . one that’s very fun, and doing great things for animals and kids. 

While building this issue, we had the pleasure of connecting with so many great people doing amazing work for our pets, people, and community.  In the work we all do there are of course many hard things.  Thankfully, though, we constantly encounter devoted heroes working tirelessly to make a difference — changing and saving lives, lifting up animals, and the people who love them.

Here’s to this season of abundance!
