If you’ve ever owned a dog, then you probably know that rescuing one is a great idea. After all, there are so many pups in need of homes right now! But what if someone asks why it matters to rescue dogs at all? There are many reasons why it’s important to rescue pups—one of them being that there are so many that need saving.
The sad truth is that there are millions of dogs in need of homes right now. And while many shelters do their best to find them good families, they simply don’t have the resources or space to help all the animals that need it. So if you can foster, adopt or volunteer at a local animal shelter—or even donate some money to one—you’ll be helping many pups find forever homes.
Here are a few facts that hopefully will impact you're decision to why you should consider rescuing a dog:
The number of homeless animals in the United States is staggering. According to the ASPCA, there are over 6.5 million stray and abandoned dogs and cats. These pups need homes; they deserve a chance at life just like any other animal.
There are many different breeds of dogs to choose from. From puppies, to seniors and even purebreds, the options are endless.
Your new dog will have been most likely spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before coming home with you. This means they'll be healthier, happier and ready to enjoy life with their new family!
Last but not least, adopting from a local shelter or rescue can help prevent overpopulation by taking one more pet off the streets or from being put down due to lack of space.
As a rescue dog lover, Tiffany Dnaka, often creates artwork of dogs that are need of adoption! Below are some current and past rescue pups, that are available for adoption.
