Over 12 million dogs a year are put to death, not sleep, because of overpopulation. Aprox. 30% of them are purebreds, and more than half are under two years of age.
I urge and beg you to please consider saving a life and adopting your next best friend!
Stay away from pet stores. They treat animals like trash. Please visit your local shelter and dog pound.
Fannie came into our lives February 2007. We lost Sabrina, our sweet pit/Boxer in Jan from Lymphoma and my wife was “just looking” on-line to see what was going on in the world of lost and needy animal. All of a sudden she came across a group called the SHCGNY. They posted a picture of dog that they found roaming the streets on Long Island that ended up in a shelter for 5 long months and then at a vet’s kennel for a few weeks before she was supposed to go back to a shelter.
“Hey Honey, come check out this pup named Funny Fannie”, my wife said to me.
I said, “No way. The story is sad but I’m sure she’ll get a home”. As my wife reiterated the point that she was in a shelter for way too long she shoved the computer in my face.
As soon as I saw the picture of “Funny Fannie” in a Santa hat I was hooked.
My next question I asked was…..”When are we visiting her?”
The rest as they say,,,,is history. A wonderful history.
