Education is the key to understanding that shelter pets come in all shapes, sizes, and breeds. When a pet is purchased from a breeder or pet store, you are supporting the business of puppy mills and contributing to pet overpopulation.

SPAY/NEUTER YOUR PETS Get the facts, fight pet overpopulation. 

Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.

Senior dogs lose their homes for a variety of reasons, usually having nothing to do with their behavior or temperament, but more due to the fact that their owners are unable to keep them.
