Each pet adoption experience has been different -- we've worked with a variety of foster families and shelters. But with each dog, the end result has been the same: we've been truly amazed by the amount of love and affection each has to give.
While euthanasia rates for dogs and cats in our nation's animal care and control facilities have been in steady decline for more than three decades, there are still millions of healthy dogs and cats euthanized every year. We as a nation shouldn't stand for that.
A story recently came my way of a lucky dog, Loui, who was adopted through The Shelter Pet Project. This public awareness project urges would-be pet parents to make shelters their first stop when adding a pet to the family.
