The photo below from January 2009 is me, Corky the Shelter Dog, shown held in my wire cage before being adopted and joining my forever family, and now my mission is to promote pet rescue.
The insert shows me cleaned up and groomed 9 months later, and much much happier.
The number of unwanted pets in animal shelters worldwide is alarming! Those that don’t become adopted like me are euthanized, and not all get a full week waiting period. Sometimes it’s just days! Those euthanized in the USA are estimated upwards of 6 million loving animals each year, so imagine how many pets are lost worldwide.
Unless you have the mindset to look into the facts behind those numbers, you cannot appreciate the risk to perfectly healthy pets.
As my website grows, the plan is to add more and more content about pet rescue efforts and little things people can do for animals, and not just cats and dogs. For now we are studying how to implement a database of adoptable pets, so our website visitors may search real time for a pet to adopt near where they live.
Stay tuned for progress updates on adding pet adoption search, and as we continue our mission to promote pet rescue.
