Many people surrender their dogs to the Harris County Animal Shelter. Many don't know that the dogs who don't get adopted are put to sleep. Sophy and Emma were both adopted from that shelter. We were lucky to find them online the moment the shelter posted their photos. Since I am a new dog owner, I have learned so many things about animal shelters. First, there are two types of shelters. One is like the Harris County Animal Shelter that puts animals to sleep when there is no one to adopt them. For my younger readers, that means that the animals die, hopefully, in a painless way. There are also NO KILL shelters in the city. Just google them! Between these two types of shelters are everyday people and rescues that try to foster and save the animals to buy time for someone to adopt them, if they are not adopted at the shelters right away. If you ever want to help, look at the videos of shelter animals. If they do not have over 1K views, do your part to share them! It takes about that many views till a foster, rescue, or adopter will step up.
Here is a link to the volunteer run Facebook page of the shelter . Check out their videos of urgent animals and share!
