I'm a firm believer that no life is complete without an awesome dog to love up on, in fact, I love dogs so much I have three of them at home. If you agree with my dog-loving philosophy, but don't currently have a dog that fills the part, head over to Winnebago County Animal Services in Rockford sometime today or Saturday, (October 29 & 30).

'Make A Dog's Day' at Winnebago County Animal Services This Weekend

October has been deemed "Subaru Loves Pets Month", so Napleton Subaru is bringing their pet-loving mission to Winnebago County Animal Services this weekend in hopes they'll find a whole bunch of awesome dogs some loving homes.


Napleton Subaru and Winnebago County Animal Services' "Make A Dog's Day " will feature:

  • Discounted adoption fees on select dogs
  • Free Pizza for all potential adopters
  • A goodie bag and free dog bed from CARE for PETS for every dog adopted (while supplies last)
  • Chance to win free pet grooming and boarding from Airport Pet Lodge

Things You Need to Know Before Adopting During This Adoption Event

Winnebago County Animal Services currently has many awesome dogs available for adoption, but not all of them will be eligible for the discounted adoption fee during the next two days. All potential adopters should fill out an adoption application online before heading to the shelter if they want to make the process faster, (and not miss out on your dream dog). Adoptions during the "Make A Dog's Day" event will take place Friday (October 29) from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday, (October 30) from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Available dogs and more information about the adoption process can be found now at winnebagoanimals.org.

LOOK: Here Are 30 Foods That Are Poisonous to Dogs

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
