I’ve written about this fairly extensively in another Underbite Journal post, but I wanted to give everyone another little snapshot into the reality of rescue work. This is a collection of a few of the Facebook posts from the Humane Society of Elmore County for about six weeks (between May and June). Please take a moment to really look at and register the numbers they deal with every day…
These numbers are relatively common across shelters and rescues. They are drowning in unwanted animals from irresponsible pet owners and just the sheer numbers of puppies and kittens that are born and dumped because someone didn’t spay or neuter (or even just supervise) their pet. Something’s gotta give. There are resources available if you need help. I’ve listed some below. And if you can, please adopt or foster, donate or volunteer, or at least share and support our rescues on social media.
