Think about that a minute.
That means that 500,000 dogs, cats and an assortment of other pet animals, are not in a shelter.
That means that there are more than 500,000 individuals and families whose lives are enriched because they have a pet to love in their homes.
This year’s Clear The Shelters campaign resulted in the adoption of more than 130,000 pets and counting, as animal shelters continue to report in.
