Adopt Some Unconditional Love On National Puppy’s Day
This holiday was started by Colleen Paige to encourage people to adopt instead of buying their dogs. I couldn’t find the original year it was started, but she started other animal awareness days and you can check them out on her website: colleenpaige.com.
I found this terrible quote on Heavy.com:
According to Animals Abused & Abandoned, the ASPCA estimates that five out of 10 dogs in shelters are destroyed just because no one has adopted them. Seven out of 10 cats are also destroyed because no one adopts them. An estimated 5 to 9 million dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters across the country. (source: Heavy.com)
So if you are looking for a new pet to add to your family, check out adoption and save a life!
