the recession is ruff for many …

Even though the recent Dogster Poll showed that most dog owners are hopeful and pawsitive about 2009, the dog-gone truth is that right now we’re in the midst of an economic crisis. Sadly, when unemployment rises, our four-legged friends also feel the crunch, all the way from fewer chew-toy purchases to overcrowded shelters and rescue centers….

shelters all across the country have reached and surpassed their occupancy levels and are facing numbers the likes of which they’ve never seen before. It’s happening all over.

One response to “the recession is ruff for many …

  1. I know this is a little late, but yesterday Hill’s had “Change a Dog’s Life Day”where they helped to pay for pet adoptions in shelters across the US. Pedigree is also donating money from tix purchased for Hotel For Dogs I think that by these large companies making this issue more known to the public that pet lovers will help to decrease the numbers of dogs in shelters.
