We love animals, but not spam bots!
Please spay and neuter your pets: Everyday in the United States, roughly 70,000 puppies and kittens are born while only 11,000 people are born. It’s simple math – there just aren’t enough homes for all of these animals. Consequently, every year 10-12 million animals are euthanized in shelters for lack of available homes. Need spay/neuter assistance? Try (800)-248-SPAY or (800)-321-PETS (source: PetRescue.Com).
Are you looking for a new pet? Please do your research first, then consider adopting a homeless animal from your local shelter or rescue organization. If you save one animal you won’t change the world, but the world will surely change for that one animal. Alternatively, seek a reputable breeder who aims to improve the quality standards of their breed or species.
