Adopting a dog is a big decision, but once the commitment has been made it can become confusing as to where is the best place to find your new family member. Many people immediately think they should get a puppy and begin to look for breeders, which has unbeknown to the adopter led to puppy mills or pet stores.
Between 3 and 4 million dogs and cats are sadly euthanized each year in the United States simply because too many people give up their pets and too few people adopt from shelters. Limited space at shelters leave staff members with a very hard decision to euthanize animals who haven’t been adopted.
