Three million adoptable dogs enter shelters across the United States each year, making overpopulation a serious issue. Although there are over 3,500 animal shelters in the United States, only around 2,000 classify as no-kill. Unfortunately, this means many lost, abandoned, rescued, or stray pets who find their way to a shelter are in danger of euthanasia to combat the staggering overpopulation.
These pets are patiently waiting to meet their new families and receive a second chance at life! Opening your home to a rescue dog comes with several benefits, some you may have never even considered.

You’ve crunched the numbers, got the blessing of your current dog (or reached a tentative agreement with your cat), found the perfect candidate at your local shelter, or decided on a reputable breeder, and now it’s official. You’re ready to introduce a new four-legged family member into your home.
Bringing a new dog into your home is a big deal! But, before you get too excited imagining the prospect of your new pup becoming best friends with the dog you already have at home or cuddling up and sharing naps with your cat, you’ll have to consider the best way to introduce them to your home and family.

They may not come with pedigree paperwork, but Mutts are special dogs that hold a special place in the hearts of their owners. These lovable mixed breeds usually end up in shelters or rescue organizations, as they lack the distinct physical characteristics and traits that most breeders look for. They are not purebred and may not have been planned for at all.
But the term mutt or mongrel or mixed breed should not be thought of negatively. These dogs come with a host of benefits that their purebred counterparts don’t. They are typically cheaper, more distinct looking, they can be healthier, and come with the bonus of saving a life!
