This is Why Adopting a Pet is so Important
This infographic was developed through a partnership with the Petfinder Foundation and Orvis to help animal shelters and rescue groups find loving homes for dogs in need. It shares some of the most current figures on pet homelessness and demonstrates why adopting a pet is so important. Orvis and Petfinder hope that with continued awareness and more resources made available for prospective owners, these numbers can be improved over time as families are connected with their newest (and furriest) members. It makes a strong case for first-time owners as well as people that are looking for specific, pure-bred pets to start their search at shelters and rescues rather than commercial breeders or pet stores.
