Animal homelessness is a serious dilemma being tackled by the world today. Dogs and cats from all Walks of like find themselves in animal shelters around the country and get very limited stays in these shelters if they do not get adopted. According to “dosomething.org,” approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter shelters nationwide every year! Of those 3.9 million are dogs. “Do something” goes further to state that only 1 out of 10 dogs born in America ever find a home! One of the main reasons for animal homelessness points the finger at irresponsible owners. According to “Shelter Pet PR,” owners either give their animals up at the shelter without registering them or even just leave them at the door. In more common occurrences, dogs are found on the street and collected by animal control. The number of homeless dogs and cats in the united states is predicted to be disturbing 70 million around the country. There is no need to lose hope though as more and more Americans are rescuing dogs around the nation.
