We all want what is best for our dogs, but unfortunately, not all dog owners feel the same way. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), many dog owners think that canines are too much work and abandon them. This leads to approximately 3.3 million dogs landing in animal shelters in the United States annually. Unfortunately, 670,000 of those dogs are euthanized.
Although it seems as if the news is grim, there is also a silver lining to this dark cloud. When humans step up to the plate and do the right thing, they can often repair the damage that these dogs experience. That will become evident to you when you see the sub-Reddit thread associated with sharing pictures of dogs that have been adopted. The before and after pictures are a real eye-opener!
