It's never a bad time to show your support for pets looking for homes, but since October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, now is definitely the perfect time. Sponsored by the ASPCA, the annual themed month is all about helping out the millions of pups (and cats!) living in America's 10,000 shelters, sanctuaries, and rescue organizations, both by raising awareness and funds to finance adoptions, medical treatments, and more. And while donating money or volunteering at an animal rescue are great ways to give back this October, so is shopping super cute pet-themed items that benefit shelter pets in need.

Good news: Skechers has a new collection for Adopt a Shelter Dog Month featuring dozens of pet-themed clothing and shoes, and proceeds from this collection go toward supporting pet shelters and animal care facilities. Available to purchase now, the BOBS from Skechers collection includes sneakers, boots, sweaters, and more perfect for pet owners. Think: An "Ask Me About My Dog" tie-dye tee, a ″You Had Me at Meow″ baseball shirt, a pair of canvas slip-ons adorned with an image of Instagram sensation Doug the Pug. (Personally, we're obsessed with this super soft ¼-zip pullover, which sports a paw print logo, comes in four colors, and is practically begging to be worn while cuddling up on the couch with a furry friend.)

There are cozy cat- and dog-themed blankets, too, plus plenty of non-themed options, like a memory foam sneaker that comes in 11 colors and a French Terry jogger pant ideal for late-night dog walks. You can view the full shoe and apparel collections on Skechers' site, and some options are available to buy via Amazon, too. Prices for the shoes start at $24.99, while the clothing items begin as low as $13.20.

While Adopt a Shelter Dog Month is certainly great timing to pick up some new duds, the collection is available all year-round, not just in October, and new products are regularly added. Every single purchase gives back to the animals. Since 2016, BOBS from Skechers has contributed over $7 million to pet-centric organizations, benefiting a total of 1.3 million shelter dogs and cats in North America, according to a Skechers rep. And since 2019, proceeds from the collection have led to over $3.4 million in donations to the nonprofit Petco Love, which gives back to animal shelters, rescues, and medical facilities.

If you're looking to make some new additions to your wardrobe this season, why not check out the BOBS collection and support some needy pets? Trust us: hitting "add to cart" feels a lot better when you know you're not only going to be looking good but helping out adoptable dogs and cats in the process.
