Episode 35 - Adopt a shelter dog. Don't support puppy mills.
Each year 2.7 million dogs are killed every year because shelters are too full and there aren’t enough adoptive homes. It's estimated that 2.11 million puppies are sold that originated from puppy mills
Only 1 out of every 10 dogs born will find a permanent home, and homeless animals outnumber homeless people 5 to 1. Less than 10% of the animals received by shelters have been spayed or neutered. Overpopulation, due to owners letting their pets accidentally or intentionally reproduce, sees millions of these “excess” animals killed annually.
Many strays are lost pets that were not kept properly indoors or provided with identification. According to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), less than 15 to 20% of dogs are returned to their owners.
We are joined by Tammy Dupal from Twisted Tails animal rescue to discuss puppy mills and shelter dogs. Tammy spends weeks and countless hours just to rescue stray dogs. She tells a few amazing and heartwarming stories of her rescue missions. This episode might make you tear up a little bit as you hear about the conditions these dogs are in, but by the end you will smile knowing they all went to a forever home and are given a second chance to live a normal healthy happy life.
