Adopt a Puppy

Craig Shapiro

National Puppy Day is March 23, and its message to “adopt instead of shop” is an important reminder that we can save a life by opening our hearts and homes to an animal from a shelter, instead of from a pet store or breeder. More than six million animals arrive in shelters every year, and because there are not nearly enough good homes for all of them, roughly half must be euthanized.

Every puppy purchased from a breeder or pet store denies a home to one waiting in a shelter, one whose life may depend on being adopted.
