Every time a rescued dog gets adopted it frees up the space and another dog in need can be saved.
Pet overpopulation is a global problem. With millions of animals in need of adoptive homes, many people may get discouraged and believe that adopting one animal will not change or improve the overall situation. When in fact the reality is just the opposite. The adoption of that ONE dog makes possible the saving of another dog in need, due to the place that it frees up. Most animal shelters are overcrowded with animals waiting to be adopted and rescuers are able to take in another animal only after the ones they already have in care have found adoptive homes. Some animal shelters are forced to make difficult decisions and euthanize pets to make space for incoming animals.
Each adoption creates space for another animal in need to be rescued and find lasting love through the magic of adoption.
Without adoptions, the rescue work cannot continue. If that one dog does not get adopted, none of the millions of homeless dogs waiting for a chance can be saved. Please make adoption your first option!

This video made by Howl Of A Dog emphasizes the importance of adoption and it is dedicated to all the wonderful people in this world who have opened their hearts and homes and adopted an animal in need.

The dogs featured in this video were rescued by Howl Of A Dog organization, Romania and have found wonderful forever homes all over the world. You can watch their rescue stories HERE.
