Of the eight million pets that enter animal shelters and rescue groups every year, approximately three million of these healthy and treatable pets are euthanized due to a lack of adoption. The continued euthanasia of our best friends and family members is a national tragedy.
Presently, most people do not obtain their pets from shelters, but rather from pet stores, the Internet, friends, breeders or other sources. In an effort to change this trend, The Shelter Pet Project is designed to encourage pet lovers throughout the country to make shelters and rescue groups the first place they turn to when acquiring companion animals. Contrary to popular beliefs, animals most frequently find themselves in shelters due to owner-related issues.
At www.theshelterpetproject.org you will find information about how to adopt from a shelter, as well as help for potential pet owners to identify traits to look for in an animal, as well as a list of suitable pets available in local shelters.
Save Our Strays (SOS) is an all volunteer group that assists in advertising the animals available for adoption at Kalamazoo County Animal Services and Enforcement (AS).
We are a very small group and are alwasys in need of additional help. You must be over 18 years of age to volunteer. Please click the link below if you would like more information on volunteering with SOS. Thank you.
