Did you know that about 4 million dogs enter shelters each year just in the USA alone? And that almost 50% of them get killed because they can’t find a new home? In fact, over 5000 shelter animals are killed in the US every day. Most of those animals are healthy and would have lived a long happy life.
Instead, they live out their last days in shelters, in cramped, scary, underfunded spaces with staff shortages, lonely and afraid. They aren’t getting the necessities such as food and water, let alone love. They are forgotten and abandoned.
It is time we help them, in any way we can.
