Adopting a dog

There are large number of dog lovers in Uk, yet approximately 1,02 million dogs enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of the dogs entering shelters. 5,142 stray dogs were put to sleep by UK Local Authorities between 2014 and 2015, that’s one dog every two hours.

There are many reasons why stray dogs are abandoned, such as lack of education, sickness, financial problem, migration, pregnancy and buying new dog.

Some stray dogs have been sheltered by some rescue agencies, there are also a lot of healthy stray dogs put sleep by local authorities cause some financial problems. Killing dogs is a very cruel and inhuman way. That means local authorities killed a dog every 2 hours. A medium-sized or large dog can live 11 years, people can imagine that how many dogs are killed. Sheffield RSPCA staff said: This is an urgent event that suggesting people to help the abandoned dogs and find a new home for stray dogs. When people come to visit the dogs, there are many dogs are barking in cages, that is because they want someone to adopt them, some dogs stay RSPCA rescue centre 7 or 8 years, even some stray dogs dead but no one adopt them. These dogs just have a small dream that they want to have a


warm home. They don’t want to be lonely and miserable again.

1. You will save a life By adoptting a dog you are providing an animal with the second chance they deserve. Many have been rescued from horrific circumstances such as cruelty, neglect and abandonment, or quite simply their owners were no longer able to look after them due to illness or a change in situation. Shelter staff work tirelessly to nurse animals back to health, rehabilitate disturbed animals and do everything they possibly can to ensure they are prepared to go to a new home. Sadly, not all of them are as fortunate. Some shelters have to euthanise due to lack of space, meaning many healthy animals lose their lives. For example, There
