After the GoDaddy Superbowl commercial controversy, I thought I would share some information about rescue and adoption of animals! We love our rescue pets!
Every year in the United States, more than 7.6 million cats and dogs are turned into shelters, two-thirds of which are recognized as stray or feral. According to the ASPCA, 2.7 million of these animals are euthanized. Unfortunately, no-kill shelters around the country are simply filled to capacity, and state- and city-run pounds and humane societies cannot afford to keep every animal that comes through the door. Still, death is a harsh punishment for animals only striving to stay alive.
Regular people have the power and resources to help stray and feral animals in any community around
the country. Countless furry lives can be saved if animal lovers act in any of the following ways.
