So you’ve decide you have the time and financial means to care for a new pup. What next? According to a report by ASPCA….
23% of dogs come from an Animal Shelter
20% from friends/relatives
34% from a breeder
If you truly care about the well being of animals and reducing the current pet population to ensure dogs are not euthanized, then the obvious answer is to look for your pet via one of the many local animal shelters. You can find purebred dogs, puppies, and senior dogs all waiting for a loving home.
So you’ve decided you have the time, but not the financial means to support a dog. GOOD NEWS you can still help by fostering a dog. Most local shelters will pay for the care of the dog as long as you commit to providing a loving and safe home environment for them. Contact your locals shelter to learn more about foster programs.
So you already have a house full of pups, but want to continue helping. Please consider volunteering your time or donating to your local shelter.
