S.TA.R.T Program

Has anyone hugged the animal today. I just have to say that ,due to the fact that there so many starving , stranded cats and dogs out there. Did you know that 1 to every 9 Dog or cat's get adopted? Annually by local governments to shelter & ultimately destroy 8-10 million adoptable cats & dogs because of shortage homes. This is so sad to me, 7 dogs and cats are born to every person in the U.S everyday.
I feel that it is our jobs as human beings to help with this issue! Only 1 out 5 kittens or pups saty in home adoppted! the reast are homeless in the streets.
