A picture is worth a thousand words. The picture shown above is only one of millions of pictures of homeless pets.
Fixing the growing problem of overpopulation which leads to disease, neglect, unwanted pets, abandonment, and euthanasia, starts at home.
Please be a responsible pet guardian and have your pet fixed.
Kiara is one of the millions of pets that end up in shelters each year.
She was scheduled to be euthanized in July 2015 with no hope for adoption until her rescue by the SCVVC.
Kiara's story now has a happy ending ... or rather a wonderful new beginning!
Follow Kiara on Facebook - An amazing dog with a beautiful soul whose primary goal is to serve ... and that is exactly what her SEARCH & RESCUE training is enabling her to do. The "Rescue" who will in turn be doing the "Rescuing".
Please adopt a pet - a "forever friend" - from a shelter.
Microchips save lives. They play an essential role in successfully reuniting lost pets with their families.
Although it is mandatory In many cities to have your pet microchipped, it is definitely the best step you can take to help ensure the return of a lost pet.
No matter how it is stated or how many times it is said, "microchipping provides pet owners with the best chance possible of achieving a safe return of a lost pet".
