Over 3 million dogs and cats are euthanized every year in the United States. Sad, but true. Animal shelters are overpopulated with unwanted animals, primarily the result of irresponsible breeders and dog owners. The lucky ones are re-homed, but many live out their short lives in loneliness and deprivation. We ask you to read the following and make sure that owning a dog is the right choice for you.
Your first consideration should be the type of dog that fits your lifestyle and living situation. There is considerable variation within the different breeds with respect to type (structure) and temperament. Each breed is so individual that one size cannot, and will not, fit all. Lack of research frequently results in a mismatch, leading to unhappiness for both the adoptive family and the adopted dog and a large number of these dogs are then relinquished to shelters.
Our goal at Lucky Day Animal Rescue is to place dogs into their forever homes, so please consider the following points before adopting a dog, and choose the breed that is the right fit for your home and lifestyle.
Again, please consider these points before you adopt. Lucky Day wants to match happy owners with lucky pets for a lifetime.
Thank you for considering adopting a pet from Lucky Day Animal Rescue of Colorado!
