Every single day, thousands upon thousands of dogs find themselves inside an animal shelter. The really sad part is that despite the staggering numbers, these animals represent only a small part of the population because the overwhelming majority of them never make it to the shelter in the first place. To make things even more sobering, dogs that are in a shelter have a remarkably small chance of being adopted and finding a home where they can live out their days with loving owners. In fact, there are studies that exist which show in North Carolina, as many as 95% of the dogs that make it to the shelter never get out of it alive.
