According to the Humane Society of the United States (The HSUS) , each year we celebrate National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week during the first full week of November, as a way to honor animal shelters and the dedicated people who work to protect animals. Animal shelters are vital resources for their communities and safe havens for animals. Shelters are also a great place to adopt a new family pet!
Shelters provide critical services such as investigating cruelty and neglect, reuniting lost pets with their families and teaching kids to care about animals. There are approximately 3,500 animal shelters across the United States, available to serve the estimated 6–8 million homeless animals that seek refuge each year, but only about half are adopted. While 63 percent of American households include pets, fewer than 20 percent of them were adopted from shelters. National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week is a perfect opportunity for you, your family, and your community to become acquainted with their local shelter and to help homeless pets. Our Zoomin Groomin team is constantly involved in promoting, donating and fundraising for our local shelters - that is a FUN and rewarding part of our jobs!
