The Spaniel was adopted yesterday...happy to see she found a home. One of the dogs we saw and liked at Lied was adopted.
Today's newspaper had an article about the shelters here being overcrowded and adoptions aren't keeping pace with "unwanted" pets in our struggling economy. In the last six months more people have been surrendering their pets due to losing their homes and/or jobs. Nevada has one of the highest foreclosure rates in the nation...and the shelters can't keep up. Animals are being turned away or worse euthanized due to this sad state of affairs.
I obviously won't be sharing this info with the boys but I have a very heavy heart right now.
