This picture makes me extremely sad. There are SO many dogs, cats, and other animals that end up euthanized every year in the United States that it would BLOW your mind. For instance, in my small parish in Louisiana, approximately 8000 animals a year are euthanized. Those were the statistics for last year. I have a feeling they will be going up this year given the fact that in July alone more than 1000 animals were surrendered to the shelter.
When you decide to add a new pet to your family, please consider adopting or rescuing over buying. And PLEASE spay and neuter.
I would love to hear your story if you have rescued or adopted a pet. You could be featured in the upcoming issue of Panache Magazine!
