Shelters Experience Alarming Rates Of Lost Pets

Throughout the USA shelters are experiencing an alarming rate of lost pets, since the start of the 4th of July. Even though, advocates and shelter PR personnel have placed information on how to keep companion animals safe. It is apparent that the information fell on deaf ears.

In a majority of states, media reports have also circulated animal injuries and deaths due to irresponsible use of fireworks and neglecting the companion’s anxiety levels.

It’s 2019 and it seems that people are continuing to be ignorant of facts. Which places animals lives in immediate harm. When will a majority of people learn that even animals have emotions, feelings, and mental health disorders?

These neglectful actions are taken a toll on precious lives. We as a community must band together, to once again educate the masses on companion care.

In the days to come, we will be working on just that. By way of information posts pertaining to animal care, animal training, and animal health.

As of now, shelters are asking for owners to come forward to claim their family members. Therefore, if you have lost a companion animal please check the shelters.
