If you take an animal into your home, please know that you are making a lifetime commitment.
Dogs are family members. They aren’t toys, they aren’t property, they aren’t accessories, and they aren’t just there to look cute until they’ve grown out of puppyhood. Until every human understands this, breeders will keep filling pet stores with puppies that contribute to our devastating overpopulation crisis that leads to a pet being euthanized in American shelters every 10 seconds.

i used to work in a city government run shelter, please be a responsible pet owner, spay/neuter, and take care of your pet for life, don’t let them end up in a shelter. i’ve seen so many perfectly healthy, sweet, and adoptable animals be put down because no one wanted them and there are too many.
