As October rolls around, we are greeted with Fall in the air and pumpkins everywhere, but our favorite part is the observance of Adopt A Shelter Dog Month. Having two amazing rescued pups at the shop, we know the value these lovable, furry cuties bring to our work environment and family life.

Artificer Shop Dogs - Millie and Claude

Shelter dogs provide so many health benefits from helping you get outside and exercise to companionship for you and your family. They improve your mood and bring stress levels down. Most importantly, you save a life. The joy and gratification derived from saving a dog in need is limitless – they are forever grateful!

If you’re looking to add a new furry family member, please consider adopting a shelter or rescue pet. Or, if you know someone who’s recently adopted, consider congratulating them with one of our new pet wine boxes! These are the perfect gifts for new pet parents, the new addition, or pet lover!


The wine featured for the parents is from Chateau La Paws. This wonderful company proudly supports No Kill Organizations around our country and their labels feature adorable shelter dogs.

Pet Adoption Wine Box Gift with Wine

The wines featured for your dog or cat are by Apollo Peak; named after the company mascot and beloved cat of Brandon Zavala, Founder and President of Apollo Peak.

Dog Lover Wine Box Gift with doggie wine

As part of our artist partnerships, we also feature two new designs from Jill DeLuce of DeLuce Designs, perfect for the dog or cat lover.

Most shelter and rescue organizations will spay or neuter your pet (as well as ID them) before adopting. However, if they do not, please remember to do so 🙂 Long after October is over, we hope you’ll consider a shelter pet for your next family member!
