Did you know that many pups that are brought into shelters, whether it’s because they are strays or because their previous owners abandoned them, are euthanized? Many shelters end up putting dogs down, especially those that have been taking up residence for a long time, simply because they have to free up space for new dogs that are brought in.
While it’s true that there are no-kill shelters, a lot of their residents end up staying on a long-term basis.
Whether it’s a kill or a no-kill shelter, when you adopt a rescue dog, you can save a life. You’ll prevent the potential of euthanizing at a kill shelter, and you’ll give a pooch that has been living at a no-kill shelter a new lease on life. Plus, you’ll open up a spot at the shelter for another canine that needs protection.
