WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP OUR K-9 FRIENDS

In almost every city and county in the nation and throughout the world, there is a Humane Society. A Humane Society is a place where abandoned and unwanted dogs are taken. Almost all Humane Societies are burdened with limited funds and space. They attempt to find new homes for homeless dogs but space is limited. After a certain amount of time, dogs not adopted are put to sleep to make room for new incoming ones. Brace yourself! A dog, cat, puppy or kitten is put to death approximately every second and a half of every day. For the average reader, ten more animals have already been put to sleep in the length of time it's taken you to read this far. Here is what you can do to help:

 

1) ADOPT A PET: The Humane Societies are full of them. For every one you adopt and take home, one less pet will be put to sleep and another faithful friend will find a good home.

2) SPAY AND NEUTER: Have your pet spayed and neutered so the overpopulation will not continue.

3) KEEP ID TAGS ON YOUR PET: Have the pet's name, phone number and address as well as the name of the pet's vet on the tag.

4) KEEP PETS OFF THE STREETS: They don't belong running around where cars can hit them. For household pets, this is the number one cause of deaths. If you find a stray pet on the streets, make sure you take the time and make an effort to get it home safe and sound--you may have saved it's life.

5) IF YOU MUST! If you must, make an effort to find a home for your pets yourself if you find you can not keep them.

 

My Best,
