The importance of adopting shelter pets

- on supporting our pet family- this weekend we are heading to- jackson county to help clear- the shelter - news 25's victoria bailey has - the story.- - statistics show each year 8 to- 12- million dogs, cats, puppies and- kittens are euthanized- because there are simply not- enough homes for them well- that's where folks like you and- us here at wxxv step in.- payton:"we love our pets.

We've- all almost rescue pets from - - - - jackson county.

I rescued olivi- a couple years ago and she was- our pet of the week.

We bring i- a - pet every week we feature them- on the show, on the noon show - and then when i - saw her, i fell in love.

So i - went out there and i rescued- - - - her" taylor: adoption obviously- speaks volumes to me because i- adopted - charlie, my border collie from- the jackson county animal - - - - shelter a little over a year- ago, actually.

They help us and- we help them.

They help us- because - when we're down and we're in- need of a friend they're always- there for you giving- you unconditional love and we'r- - - - helping them by providing a new- forever home hopefully so that'- why it's always important to- really adopt and gave - these animals second chances" - - - - jordan is a pet parent and she- says it's important to give - shelter pets a forever home to- see them really come alive- "you get to see the joy in the- personality that comes out of - that dog when it finds a home.- because these dogs do have- personalities - - - - and they have real needs and- when you bring one home with yo- and give it that- security of knowing that someon- is going to be there- to love it, and feed it, and- care for it every day you get t- see his personality and this- dog is going to start loving yo- too"- hundreds of animals enter the - jackson county animal - shelter door every month... wit- - - - no place to call home.

"if they- don't know, then they should- know, about how badly - overcrowding is,- especially at the jackson count- animal- shelter i know maridee malette,- the adoption coordinator there,- was always- explaining they taken 400 to 50- animals - every month and it's just - getting really bad and they - really don't want to have to- euthanize animals that don't- deserve to be put down."- jordan: "if you get one from th- humane society a lot of the - vaccinations will be- taken care of they spayed and - neuter so that's a lot off your- back" but, the most important - thing to keep in mind is..... - "you've got to make sure you're- mentally physically financially- able to go and rescue - a pet you don't want to - rescue a pet and then realize o- i can't do this and have to tak- the poor thing back - you know back to the- shelter and that happens so i - think one of the most important- - - - things is yes we want people to- come out and- rescue these animals and adopt- them but make sure that you can- come out and do - it" - - - -
