Do you love animals? Well, there may be some facts that you don’t know.  People that don’t want their pets simply dump them! Thankfully, animal control finds them, and takes them to a shelter. About 3.2 million of these poor pets who don’t have people who love and care for them get adopted each year. Did you know that the most common dog breeds found in shelters are Beagle, Boxer, Dachshund, American Staffordshire Terrier, German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, Chihuahua, and America Pitbull Terrier?

At the shelter, the animals are examined and taken care of. The shelter makes sure that the they have fresh food and water, along with a clean cage. One of the bad things about shelters is that not all of the animals find homes. However, you can help. You could volunteer at a local animal shelter, or better, adopt an animal. If you do this, you’re definitely doing the right thing.

Some things that you can do to help are volunteering at your local animal shelter, adopting a pet or two, and raising funds for a shelter of your choice. Ways to help lost or hurt animals are by fostering them, and spreading the word about animal cruelty. If you do this, you can cause more people to want to help. This will inspire people to make the world a better place. People should always take the opportunity to help an animal in need. One good animal shelter is the Gloucester County animal shelter. Here is the link: http://www.co.gloucester.nj.us/depts/a/shelter/default.asp
