NATIONAL ANIMAL SHELTER APPRECIATION WEEK

The Humane Society of the United States' National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week is a way to honor animal shelters and their dedicated staff across the country.

There are approximately 4,000 animal shelters across the U.S., available to serve the estimated 6-8 million homeless animals who seek refuge each year. While 63 percent of American households include pets, only 10 percent of owned dogs and 18 percent of owned cats are adopted from animal shelters.

Spread the word about animals waiting to be adopted, and celebrate the many services provided by your local animal shelter—click here for some ideas!

It's amazing how many people don't adopt their pets. We have two shelter adopted companion animals and one that we got from a friend's litter. The only animals I ever buy are the fish. It's hard to adopt unwanted fish! :)

Thanks for making us aware of this. Good thoughts on energy on this topic are needed badly.
