Dog Rescue and Adoption Information
If you are thinking about getting a dog, why not consider dog rescue and adoption? Adopting a homeless animal is one of the most rewarding experiences a pet lover can have. There tends to be a special bond between a rescued animal and his adopter, and knowing that you did a good thing for your new dog and for your community is a great feeling!
In shelters in the United States, 11 million animals are euthanized annually. The majority of these animals were loved family pets, and they had only one problem - they were homeless. Homelessness is the most deadly condition a domestic pet can experience. When you adopt a dog, you are saving his life and making room for another dog to find a home. Dog adoption is one kind act that can save many lives!
There are rescue groups for every breed of dog imaginable, whether you want a mutt or a purebred, a puppy or a mature dog. The dog rescue and adoption articles offered in this category provide information for potential adopters as well as people who may have recently adopted a rescue dog.
