Rather than going over the specifics of this heartbreaking statistic, I’d like to focus on the positive aspects of adopting a pet. When you adopt a companion animal, you gain the lifelong gratitude and devotion of a pet that would otherwise be homeless. And the devotion and happiness go both ways! There are hundreds of “Happy Tails” on petfinder.com, describing the joy that adopted animals have brought to the lives of their families. And pictures, like these!
So, my little two-legged friends, please consider adopting one of us four-leggers. We're worth it!
This is Tipper, signing off with an extra slurpy smooch. Back to your regularly scheduled blog.
