It's a sad truth - there are more pets than there are homes for them. And, unfortunately, due to pet overpopulation, some shelters have to euthanize animals.
If that breaks your heart, there are a couple of things you can do.
As Bob Barker always said, control the pet population. HAVE YOUR PET SPAYED OR NEUTERED.
Donate to your favorite shelter to help them save as many lives as they can.
Foster and adopt shelter pets.
One of the most amazing area no-kill shelters that we have in the tri-state area is It Takes a Village. They work night and day to rehome animals. And they do a great job.
Yesterday, they posted on Facebook that they need a little extra help to save some doggos from a partner shelter that will be forced to make the hard choice to euthanize on Friday if foster homes aren't found.

A partner shelter has reached out to us for help as they are overcrowded and will have to euthanize these dogs on Friday. This is not something they want to do but they have no other options.
We cannot pull any of these dogs unless we have foster homes lined up for them by Thursday afternoon and/or move some of the dogs at our rescue center into foster homes.
