There. I said it.
Let's face it. Don't get a dog if you really want a new bag. Or shoes. Or a pretty blouse. That's not what we're about. We're not the latest fashion accessories. If we were, it would mean that we'd end up out of style, and we'd fill up shelters across the country. Imagine if that were the case!! Okay, it IS the case.
Chew on this: The HSUS estimates that between 3-4 MILLION unwanted dogs and cats in shelters are euthanized every year. That's 3-4 MILLION! You can help put an end to this craziness by spaying or neutering your pet. If you don't have a pet, support spay/neuter programs in your area.
Look, an average cat can produce up to three litters a year. Each litter averages 4-6 kittens. An average dog can have up to two litters of 6-10 pups a year. You do the math. And besides, unneutered male dog or cat pee really stinks. Jeez, guys, gimme a break, wouldja?
