Today, the 4th of October, is World Animal Day. A day to celebrate the love and happiness our pets give us everyday.
Let’s also use this day to think about what we, the loving pet owners, can do to make everyday World Animal Day for all the animals.
What can you do?
Be a part of the solution not the problem.
Spay, Neuter and Adopt!
Some things are hard to see, hard to know. Those sad stories, the horrific numbers…
BUT..Don’t turn your head, cause the only way we can change this is to face the problem and create awareness.
Every year, an estimated 5 to 10 million pets are euthanized in animal shelters only in the United States. Why? Because there is no place for them to go, no homes for them. Yet, we continue to let animals roam freely, unneutered and producing more unwanted animals. Their offspring often go from birth to the shelter where, if they are not adopted before their days are up, they will be killed. That is where the expression “born to die” applies; newly born into this world only to be put to death. What a tragic waste of life. There is a solution for this overpopulation problem, and that is to spay and neuter and adopt.
Instead of buying a puppy from a breeder or shop you can choose to adopt a dog from a shelter or from a rescue group. There are also a lot of Rescue Groups for specific breeds.
Please Watch, Learn, Act and Share.
Neuter and spay your pets and adopt pets from shelters and rescue groups.
Think before you take a pet into your home, so when you do, you make that choice for their whole lifetime.
When you have enough time, money and love to care for a dog for life
look for love in shelters and rescues and save an animal .
