October is National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and the Waco Humane Society is welcoming potential adopters in with open arms.

The shelter is offering $13 adoptions on Oct. 13. The staff is also planning to set up a special offer for Oct. 31.

Right now, the shelter has 232 dogs that are in need of a good home.

Don Bland is the executive director for the Humane Society of Central Texas. He hopes those looking for a new furry friend stop by the shelter first.

"You know, they always tell you and I've always heard for many years that shelter pets know they're getting a second chance. They can be some of the best animals you've ever had," said Bland. "I have two of them."

If you're more of a cat person, there are also more than 100 cats ready to be adopted.

Adoptions are normally $50 for adult cats and dogs and $75 for puppies and kittens.
