Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter shelters each year. Some are lost pets who end up returned to their homes, but many will never leave. Why?
Because we have too many dogs, too many breeders, too many people not spaying and neutering, and too many owners who abandon their pets. The supply is simply greater than the demand.
The stigma that shelter dogs are damaged or bad is not only incorrect, it also condemns millions of animals to death each year. Every time you buy a dog, you contribute to this epidemic.
Save an animal’s life and adopt instead.
