Julie is a 29 year old executive for a cheese company and Charlie is a cheese loving dog who has once stuck in a shelter. Julie found Charlie on Facebook and fosters Charlie until it finds a new home. It is a fact that 61% of people would be willing to foster if their local shelter had a foster program. Also 20% of the foster parents find their forever friends and adopt their foster pets themselves. Thus Julie too became a foster failure and decided to adopt Charlie.
It is a fact that homeless pets outnumber homeless people by a ratio of 5:1. Through Adopt a Pet program, 13,500 shelters, humane societies and rescues have created listings for 200000 pets. There are about 5,000 animal shelters in the US and about 8 million cats and dogs enter these shelters each year. Out of these, 3.4 million pets are adopted each year and 70% of the pets are euthanized each year. People can help by adopting many pets like rabbits, goats, ferrets, dogs, cats, parakeets, turtles, horses, guinea pigs and even snakes.
