Did you know that according to the ASPCA each year approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter shelters?  And of that 6.5 million, 1.5 million of those animals will be euthanized?    Both of those numbers are entirely too high. So with the help of people making the conscious decisions to spay and neuter their pets, and consider rescuing their next pet, we can help make those numbers go down. Our local shelters and rescues are all very crowded right now and in need of fosters and adopters.  If you've been thinking about adding a pet to your home, please consider adopting.  With adopting you quite literally save two lives, one is the life of the animal you give a loving home to, and the other life is the animal that can now move into that open space at the rescue.
