Adopting a pet could be a hard decision in itself, let alone making sure you pick the right one for your particular situation. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’s National Rehoming Survey, 47 percent of rehomed dogs and 42 percent of rehomed cats often have to find new owners because of problematic behaviors, growing too large, and health problems that could not be handled. April Delfosse from the Door County Humane Society says it is a hard decision, but you have to do what is right for the animal.
The Door County Humane Society handles approximately 700 pets every year as they try to find them new homes. As of Thursday morning, the Door County Humane Society sat in second place in the month-long Michelson Saving Pets Challenge with over $46,000 raised.
