Two big animal welfare organizations are encouraging people to adopt, not shop, for their next (or FIRST) family dog, with a special month-long celebration commemorating all the shelter and rescue dogs out there who are still looking for a home.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and the American Humane Association (AHA) have deemed the month of October National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and Adopt a Dog Month, respectively.
The names are slightly different, but the goal is the same — National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and Adopt a Dog Month are both about getting as many great dogs as possible into the loving homes they deserve.
It might sound obvious to anyone who has added a shelter dog to their family before, but adopting a pet is quite fulfilling.
According to the ASPCA, the results of an Edge Research poll suggest people who adopt a dog from a shelter are far more likely to feel good about their experience than those who purchase a pet from a pet store — something to keep in mind while searching for your canine companion.
Shelters and rescues in cities across the country are stepping up to promote their pooches and pups during the month of October.
In the Green Bay and surrounding areas, you can find your next furry family member by contacting these organizations:
White Paws German Shepherd Rescue (Green Bay)
Mit Liebe German Shepherd Rescue (Suamico)
Golden Retriever Rescue (West Allis)
Fluffy Dog Rescue (Milwaukee area)
Wisconsin Westie Rescue (Eau Claire)
Tailwaggers911 Dog Rescue (Grafton)
The motto of Adopt A Shelter Dog Month is: "Adopt, Don't Shop!"

We were speaking with Joe Giganti, of Catholic Financial Life, just the other day, and our conversation turned to college expenses and debt. Joe shared a resource with us, that we're now passing on to you.
While many college grads are starting their first real job, that’s not the only thing they might be starting; Student loan payments begin shortly after graduating. Many grads want to become debt-free as soon as possible but knowing how to do so isn’t always obvious.
Check out these five easy tips to help pay off your student loans sooner rather than later:
Earn money on the side - Consider picking up a side job or starting your own side business and using that money only for your loan repayment. Use the income from your full-time job for other bills and spending habits. Clean out your home/apartment by having a yard sale or sell things on Ebay. Not only will you earn some extra cash, but you’ll also feel better about having your home less cluttered.
Prioritize and pick what you spend money on - Cut out unnecessary expenses such as TV subscriptions like Netflix or Hulu, eating out, frequent shopping trips.
Refinance student loans - Refinancing your loan can mean a lower...

A frequent misperception is that long-term care insurance is only for the elderly or infirm. In reality, 50% of people receiving care today are under age 65.
It's not hard to imagine why such is the case:
Automobile and Recreational Accidents (skiing, horseback riding etc.)
Illnesses such as multiple sclerosis, stroke or heart attack.
With many working-age adults requiring long-term care services, it is easy to see that Long-Term Care Insurance is a product that everyone, regardless of age, needs to carefully consider as an addition to his or her risk management planning.
Long-term care services are only covered by Long-Term Care Insurance. It seems simple enough, but it's true - and it bears repeating...long-term care services are only covered by Long-Term Care Insurance.
Some people believe their Disability Income Insurance provides coverage if long-term care services are needed. However, Disability Income Insurance is normally designed to provide income so you can continue to meet your everyday bills and financial needs; it is usually not sufficient to pay also for long-term care services.
What Would You Do If Something Happened to You?
If you are not financially prepared for a long-term care need, your care options may be...
