SPCA  International
The mission of SPCA International
is to raise the awareness of the
abuse of animals to a global level,
to eradicate the euthanasia of
healthy and adoptable companion
animals and to mount efforts to
enhance animal welfare throughout
the world.
Pet Rescue
Over 7 million adoptable dogs & cats are killed each year due mainly to
overpopulation!  25-30% of dogs in animal shelters are purebred. The other
70-75% are lovable, wonderful mixed-breed pets, just waiting for a chance to
be your perfect new friend.

In order to help people make good choices when they adopt a dog or cat,
most humane societies, SPCAs and pet rescues provide adoption counseling
to help match the pet for adoption to the prospective new "parent".

Animal shelters and pet rescues are not filled with dog or cats that were
discarded because they're "bad". Shelter pets for adoption are wonderful
companions who became the unfortunate victims of family tragedy, unlucky
circumstances, irresponsible owners or pet breeding farms (see
Puppy Mills)

Many backyard dog breeders and pet stores who supply the majority of
purebreds simply are selling inbred pets without care for preventing genetic
problems (See
Puppy Mills)

Mixed breed pets have less inbreeding, generally less inherited genetic
disease, and therefore overall lower vet bills and happier pets! The best
place to find a mixed breed dog or cat is at an SPCA, a humane society or an
animal shelter.
