According to The Humane Society of the United States and Maddie’s Fund, of the eight million pets that enter animal shelters and rescue groups every year, approximately three million of these healthy and treatable pets are euthanized (put to death humanely) due to a lack of adoption. While there has been steady progress on the issue (in the 1970s approximately 24 million pets were euthanized), putting animals (who are our best friends/family members) “to sleep” is a national tragedy. Adopting a pet is a life-changing + enriching experience. When adopting a pet, people are obtaining companions that give them unconditional love, affection, and attention. Adopting a pet from a shelter not only saves an animal’s life, but is also good for our own well-being as research shows that owning a pet has many positive psychological and physical health benefits. The animals rescued from shelters know you’ve saved their lives, and they typically treat their rescuers with lifelong loyalty and affection.
