Misconceptions contribute to animal overpopulation. Every hour in the United States, more than 2,000 dogs and 3,500 cats are born compared to 415 humans. THERE ARE JUST NOT ENOUGH HOMES.
People give many reasons why they want to allow their dog to reproduce.
Why does your dog need training? Communication is essential in any relationship. You don't speak "Dog," and your dog doesn't speak your language. Training offers more than the ability to have your dog sit on command; it establishes a bond between you and your dog, develops the respect that is needed for a healthy relationship, and increases your dog's confidence and understanding of what is expected of him.
You've decided to give up your pet, and you're wondering if New Leash On Life can take your dog. Please be aware that...
We receive over 100 requests a week for us to take a dog in.
We have a very limited amount of space and before we can rescue a dog, one of our current dogs must find a home first.
Moving is the most common reason why people give up their pets. It doesn't have to be this way. Unfortunately, we live in a throw-away society where we feel it's alright to get rid of something once it becomes an inconvenience. Before you considering giving up your pet because you're moving, read the following:
A Pet's Prayer: "I ask for the privilege of not being born... not to be born until you can assure me of a home and a master to protect me, and a right to live as long as I am physically able to enjoy life... not to be born until my body is precious and men have ceased to exploit it because it is cheap and plentiful."
Many people have misconceptions about how the shelter system works. There are some that would never turn a dog into the shelter, even a stray with a possible owner, for fear the dog will be euthanized. And there are some that think the shelter will easily find their pet a new home. Here's some information that might be helpful before you decide to turn a dog into the shelter or adopt a dog from the shelter.
I remember the day Chance came to us. It was a spring day in 2007. I was still just a new kennel worker learning the ropes of the dog rescue world. Fresh from the East Valley shelter, our then kennel manager had been talked into pulling this older dog because he had pretty much given up on life. He needed someone to care about him again, he needed to be happy, and he ended up getting a second chance, the reason for his namesake. There wasn't anything better than chasing squirrels or running after birds for Chance. If he could just catch one!
