Adopt, Don’t Shop!
Every year 2.7 million adoptable cats and dogs are euthanized in the United States at shelters. The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them from breeders or stores that sell puppy mill puppies. With such a large number of homeless pets already waiting for a home at shelters, widespread breeding for business across the state is enhancing the crisis. Kentucky must focus on getting pets out of shelters and reducing the amount of pets that are being bred for business. Please opt to adopt rather than shop! This can mean the difference between life and death for a pet who would otherwise be euthanized.
