Rescue and Adoption

"Right now, as I am writing this, dog rescue organizations across the country are being inundated with requests for adoption of their dogs. Why?

Because Oprah Winfrey said so. Oprah told everyone - well, okay, her viewers, so close enough - to go out and adopt from their local rescue or shelter, so everyone - yes, everyone - knows what that means."

"Adopting a pet from a shelter can save an animal's life and help end puppy mill breeding.

Adopting instead of purchasing an animal from a pet store can help save a life. Adoption prevents an animal from being euthanized, or killed because there is not enough room in a shelter. It also frees up an additional cage, allowing another homeless animal to be rescued off the streets."
