Have you been thinking about bringing a dog or cat into your home in the near future? Looking for a personal companion or a household pet for the children to grow with and learn? Please consider adopting a Shelter Pet. Thousands of loving pets await a loving and forever home in shelters everywhere.
“A shelter pet is more than one in a million—she’s one in 2.7 million. That’s the number of adoptable dogs and cats who are still euthanized each year in the United States, simply because too many pets come into shelters and too few people adopt.”
— The Humane Society
If you would like to learn more, please visit The Humane Society, which can provide even more excellent reasons to bring home your next companion and pet from a shelter by tapping the link below.
Ten Reasons to Adopt a Pet. In case “Because it’s the right thing to do” isn’t enough.
July 23rd 2016 is “Clear The Shelters” day in the U. S. , a nationwide Pet Adoption Event. Nearly 20,000 pets found their forever homes in 2015, when some 400 animal shelters across the country partnered with NBC Owned Television Stations and the Telemundo Station Group. Let’s hope that we can do even better this year!
For more information on adoption and to locate a participating shelter near you, please check out the “Clear the Shelters Day” site. And if a participating shelter is not located in your area, please visit a local shelter anyway. So many lives are depending on it.
And please remember to visit with the black cats and dogs, and senior pets while there; who all make wonderfully loving companions but have a more difficult time finding homes due to unfounded superstitions and myths about aggression, bad luck and other nonsense.
A special message from Sarah McLachlan —
Thanks as always for visiting. Don’t breed or buy while the homeless die. Please adopt a Shelter Pet. You will both be happy you did. — Jim (and Red!)
