Purebreds account for 25 percent of the dogs in shelters. In some shelters, purebreds account for 30-40 percent of their animals.
Contributing to this problem are the fact that dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and other innocent animals are being forced to breed in unconscionable conditions. As a society, we are all challenged and prompted to alleviate their suffering by working together.
Breeders and puppy millers can no longer hide the fact that 3-4 million companion animals die every year in shelters. AW-USA asks all breeders and breeder associations to take responsible and creative action towards helping communities eliminate many municipal shelters from overcrowding.
Low cost, free spay and neuter programs must be created, underscored and implemented in every city and town. Every step must be taken today to reduce the number of animals being bred and the death that all the innocent animals face as a result.
Accountability will come. It always does.
Adopt your next animal from your local animal shelter and/or rescue group that saves them from euthanasia. Spay and neuter your animals.
Work collaboratively with your city or town officials to improve animal care and control facilities.
Remember over 2 million companion animals are sadly sent into the USA euthanasia rooms or gas chambers every year. They need all of us to help change that
Adopt an animal...save a life...become a hero.
