Taken right from the Humane Society website:

From dogs whose owners had to move and weren't able to bring their faithful friend with them, to cats whose owners brought them to the shelter because of allergies, your local shelter is full of pets looking for love and a second chance.

In fact, between three and four million dogs & cats are euthanized each year in animal shelters across the nation. If more families looking for a pet, chose to adopt their new furry friend from a shelter, we could put an end to this tragedy.

Bottom line: Shelter animals make great pets!

They certainly do. I've been adopting pets from the Ulster County SPCA for over 25 years and I've never regretted a single adoption decision. Looking for a pet? DON'T go to a pet store where you will be putting money in the pockets of puppy millersl Also beware BYB - back yard breeders - as they are often "small scale" puppy mills. Remember that just because a "breeder" says their pups are AKC registered does not mean they are swell-bred, healthy dogs. Do your homework before adopting any animal.
