The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals states “Approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. We estimate that the number of dogs and cats entering U.S. shelters annually has declined from approximately 7.2 million in 2011”. These animals don’t have someone to speak on their behalf or have the capability to make people aware of their urgent need for help. It is up to us to spread the word and create awareness of the importance of rescuing animals in need.
In the movie Secret Life of Pets 2, the character Duke (the large brown mutt) was a rescued dog. His owner Kate rescued him from a pound. Kate gave Duke a second chance at life and allowed him to find new happiness within her little family with Max.
