Between three and four million dogs and cats are euthanized each year in animal shelters in the United States. But if more families looking for a pet this year would adopt their new furry friend from a shelter, we could put an end to this tragedy.
With the help of animal lovers like you, we can spread the word about the benefits of adoption and work to end the senseless euthanasia of homeless pets nationwide.
Did you know that one in four shelter dogs are purebred? Or that most animals in shelters are victims of circumstance, there only because of "people problems" like divorce, foreclosure, and change in lifestyle? The bottom line is shelter animals make great pets.
Jumpstart the HSUS Adopt campaign and the chance at a better life for millions of homeless animals.
Watch the video below and then please take the HSUS pledge to adopt your next pet--then urge your friends, family, and loved ones to do the same.
