Dogs and cats make wonderful pets and companions. They make us laugh and smile, and become members of our family. Dogs and cats are also valuable members of our society because they save lives.  For example, dogs are trained to work with police officers and find missing people. They also help protect and guide people such as guide dogs for the blind.  Dogs have even been able to 'sniff' out the location of cancer in human bodies.  In addition, studies show having a cat reduces your chance of having a heart attack because petting them lowers your blood pressure.

There are thousands of dogs and cats killed in shelters unnecessarily each year. The states of Texas, California, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida account for half of the animal deaths in the U.S. It is possible for states to change because Delaware no longer has kill shelters.

Please support the adoption of dogs and cats from shelters instead of purchasing from puppy mills.  In addition, please reach out to the Governors of these States and request there to be no-kill shelters so that all animals have a good life and chance for adoption.
