Sunday was Change A Pet’s Life Day! Each year animal lovers everywhere come together to raise awareness and encourage pet adoption with the goal of giving every adoptable pet a loving, forever home. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals shared that 7.6 million dogs and cats enter shelters each year, but only 2.7 million of these pets are adopted, and 2.7 million others are euthanized.
You can help change that!
There are plenty of ways to get involved and help change a pet’s life. First and foremost, if you feel it in your heart to go the extra mile, we encourage you to consider bringing a sheltered pet into your home. Whether it’s through fostering or adoption, you can help keep another homeless pet out of harm’s way.
If you don’t have the capacity to foster or adopt, you can also volunteer at or make a donation to your local shelter. The Shelter Pet Project makes it easy to locate shelters in your area that need your help.
By opening our hearts and homes, we not only change the life of a pet, but our lives as well and we encourage you do to just that! If you’ve changed a pet’s life, we want to hear about it! Share photos and stories with us on our Facebook page.
