Shelter Dogs: You Can Make a Difference

krazykaine.wordpress.com I created this video to raise awareness about the growing number of dogs in pounds, shelter and rescues across the United States. “Four million cats and dogs—about one every eight seconds—are put down in US shelters each year. Often these animals are the offspring of cherished family pets. Spay/neuter is a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, ensuring that every pet has a family to love them.” –Humane Society.org Dogs are being surrendered to pounds at an alarming rate. Dogs are being abandoned for trivial reasons such as house soiling, chewing, barking or moving. The arrival of a new baby or the misconception that dogs behave “just like the dogs from the movies” adds to the number of dogs surrendered to pounds each year. The dogs are the ones who ultimately suffer at the hand of human ignorance and irresponsibleness. Too often certain individuals fail to realize that they are the ones who brought the dog into their home. The dog didn’t choose to come live in their house. You can make a difference: Adopt Volunteer Donate Foster Rescue Spay/Neuter your pets Don’t settle for anything less than reputable breeding Support and spread positive dog training methods Special thanks to Josh Woodward for the songs, “Private Hurricane,” “Afterglow,” and On Brevity.”
