As a groomer for 20 plus years I have been pampering peoples pets but sadly through no fault of their own 4 million dogs end up in shelters every year-yet the word shelter is not quite an accurate description. The word shelter implies safety but most municipal animal controls have euthanasia rates well over 50%. The clock starts ticking the second a dog arrives, in fact if a dog is “owner surrendered” there is no hold time required before euthanasia can be administered. If the shelter is full they are usually the first to go.
The facts are sad but that’s where rescue groups come in. Groups like ours have a mission of finding as many of these deserving dogs loving, forever homes. We here at Animal Attraction do our best to evaluate, socialize and provide a stable loving environment until we can find our dogs adoptive families. We also work with other local area rescue groups to house any dogs that they do not have space for.
