When I tell people how many dogs and cats come through our Humane Society each year, the reaction is nearly always the same: a shake of the head and an expression of disbelief.
Last year, 3,000 dogs and cats came to our animal shelter. Only about 25 percent of these animals were adopted or rescued. The rest left our shelter in plastic bags. The same thing happens at animal shelters all across the country. Why? Because pet owners allow their dogs and cats to breed, producing unwanted litters. There simply aren't enough homes for all the pets we let come into the world.
Just do it!
