Shelter and Rescue Dogs

According to a study by the National Council on Pet Population, over 56% of dogs and puppies that enter shelters are killed. For this reason alone, it becomes clear why adopting dogs from your local shelter is the most ethical choice. Animal shelters have loveable dogs and cats of all shapes, sizes and ages. Only about 25% of shelter dogs are purebred. The rest of the population represents unique mixed breeds that are often one-of-a-kind. Many of these shelter dogs have already lived with families and know how to become an enjoyable member of your household.
