Here's the deal, and I'm not going to be all warm and fuzzy about it....
Every day, about 2,000 dogs and cats are euthanized in America's shelters (aka pounds).
This is where rescues like Beople's Buddies come in. They pull the animals out of the shelters before they're euthanized. But in order to do so, rescues rely on donations to help with medical expenses and basic supplies.
Rescues also rely on loving fosters to take care of these animals until they're able to find a permanent home.
Adopt. Stop buying pets. By buying pets, you keep breeders (and especially the illegal breeders on Craigslist) in business.
Everyone wants a cute, perfect little puppy. No one wants the unloved, discarded ones sitting in the shelter. Maybe it's time to change that.
