People ask me if we’ll ever run out of dogs. Short answer? No. As long as people don’t spay or neuter or use tags or mircochips, as long as people are selfish, as long as life happens, then the answer is we will never run out of dogs.
Some dogs get lost and don’t find their way back home. Some dogs are abused and left to die in some lonely place but another person stumbles on them and takes them to a place where they can heal and find a home.
People die. People get divorced, evicted, or lose jobs. Bad things really do happen to good people and when that happens sometimes they can no longer care for their dog.
There are many reasons we have dogs coming to us this week from Kentucky. I just listed a few. But we want you to know that shelter dogs aren’t broken. They’ve simply experienced more life that other dogs. Don’t pity a shelter dog. Adopt one and be proud to have their greatness by your side. I know I am.
We have rescued and found homes for thousands of dogs since we opened. We know the greatness of dogs transcends whatever happened to allow them to stay for a time in a shelter on their way to their new and last home.
This is adopt a shelter dog month and it all starts with an application. We know the perfect dog is waiting for everyone who is ready to love a dog.
