Every year, over 3 million dogs end up shelters and over half a million are euthanized. While it’s unfortunate that many dogs fall victim to homelessness, there are also many dogs who are given up for some unfair reason. Putting dogs in good homes is paramount to their survival.
Pet rescue is something we should all participate in. While it’s true that rescue animals need a little more love and care, they’ll come out better for it and so will you. We know it seems like hard work, but it’s worth it. If you don’t believe us, check out YouTuber and activist Rob Greenfield’s new spotlight video to see how easily you can change a dog’s life.
Meet Carla Naden, the woman rescuing special needs dogs. Carla started her company, Animal Synergy, to rescue “super seniors,” special needs, and terminally ill dogs. Carla’s goal is to provide respect and dignity to all beings, no matter of their age, appearance or health status, and increase the save rate of animals at shelters.
She provides her animals with a respectful, dignified life, and restores their souls for whatever time they have remaining. For her, it all started with a dog named Nugget who was given one day to live, and Carla gave him seven months. Since then, she has helped to rehabilitate over 50 dogs.
Inspired to be a part of the solution? Here’s what you can do:
- Never buy from a dog breeder.
- If you want a pet, adopt from a shelter or humane society.
- Only get a dog if you can commit to giving it a good life, for its entire life.
- Sterilize your dog so no babies are accidentally made.
- Volunteer at your local shelter and spend time with the special needs dogs.
