From rescuing animals imperiled following natural disasters and cruelty situations to working with animal shelters to increase their adoption rates, the ASPCA witnessed many successes throughout the country.
While we strategize ways to prevent the births of unwanted pets through targeted spay/neuter programs, this is a time during which many homes consider adding a four-legged family member to the household.
After adopting his first dog last year, a pit bull named Trooper, Emmy-nominated television producer, Michael Levitt, felt compelled to go further, and added animal rescue -- specifically pit bulls -- to his slate of productions.
Stray and abandoned dogs are reproducing faster than we can find homes for them, and if spaying and neutering doesn't increase dramatically, we are going to see the problem get completely out of control.
We'll continue to try to save animals from needless euthanasia in this country. We'll save the pits, and anything else we can. And we'll try to convince the adopting public to go their local shelters first, if they're in the market to adopt.
