Shelter Sunday: The Facts Behind Dog Adoption and Rescue

Pet Adoption: The Numbers Behind the Need

Pet Adoption: The Numbers Behind the Need: Developed by Orvis.

This infographic comes to us from PetFinder and Orvis. I thought it would be good to put up in place of my normal Shelter Sunday feature because it can help lots of pets rather than the one I choose to showcase each week.

I also wanted to show this because I plan to post several items about purebred dogs this week, so I wanted to balance it out a little.

It’s a lot of information to digest, but take a few minutes and try to absorb it. Some of the numbers are hard to fathom.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

I have had only one experience where I found a dog locked in a car on a summer day, and I called the police because I wasn’t sure what I could do other than that. Have you ever had to make such a decision?

Have you ever come across a dog in a hot car?
