Hinduism states, to rescue an animal is the best kind of karma a human soul can earn. Death of Owner: When a death occurs in a family, it is quite common to see Mom or Dad’s best friend being dumped at the local pound by family members who either can’t or won’t provide home and sactuary to a beloved dog. Dogs in shelters come in all shapes and sizes – and all ages.
New Leash on Life also engages in other worthwhile activities such as it’s Lend a Paw program, rescuing dogs from dog shelters and training them as therapy dogs for those in need. The proper authorities will then make the decision whether to remove the animal from its location and into a dog shelter.
Adopting a dog from the pet shelter will ensure that you have a best friend for life. Most of the time the “adult but not old” dogs are in shelters because they got lost, or because people needed to move and didn’t want to be bothered taking their dog along, or because their person passed away.
BlueDogs Rescue is also a featured charity for the Austin Marathon and participates in the 26 Miles for 26 Charities program, with local runners raising money to support BlueDog animal rescue efforts. These dogs are a part of a little known group that are available for adoption.
These adorable little dogs not only want but also need to spend time with their owners. Until recently, unwanted dogs in Tijuana Mexico shelters were electrocuted. The breeders, using a false name, represented themselves as a dog rescue. Every year more than 6 million cats and dogs are taken in by animal shelters and more than half of these have to be eventually euthanized.
