According to surveys, thousands of domestic animals are protected by different NGOs all around the world, but it’s estimated that in the US alone, 6.5 million companion animals enter shelters every year. Although there is a large number of abandoned pets, there are also many people who come to these shelters in search of a furry friend to adopt. Who knows, maybe this article will inspire you to bring home a little four-legged creature that will fill your life with love.
