Those of you who follow us on our DogTipper and CatTipper blogs know that each of our pets has been adopted from a shelter (with the exception of our cat Coco, who came to us as a stray). We can't say enough about the great pets waiting for homes in shelters around the world.
We wanted to share this infographic from the Petfinder Foundation and Orvis that provides info on the millions of dogs waiting for homes. Here's an overview:
Petfinder.com works with 12,089 adoption groups across North America to find homes for companion animals. As of May 25, 2016 there were 129,224 dogs available for adoption on Petfinder.com
