Over 4 million animals are euthanized each year
simply because too few people adopt from shelters
or rescue groups.
As a values-based industry leader, we are compelled to help find these deserving animals loving forever homes. That's why Planet Dog encourages everyone looking for a new pet to consider adoption from your local shelter or rescue group as your first option.
Planet Dog hopes to help build awareness and educate consumers about the unacceptable number of animals in shelters due to puppy mills, owners neglecting to spay or neuter their pet, or people making uninformed decisions when getting a pet.
We want to share the benefits of advocating for and choosing adoption when a person decides to bring a pet into their life. We are grateful to every home that chooses to adopt when bringing a new pet into their lives. We also celebrate PDOG Retailers who are strong adoption advocates, and all shelters and rescue groups for their invaluable work on behalf of animal welfare at the local level.
As dog lovers, we want to help benefit everyone: shelters and rescue groups, people who adopt and, most importantly, the pets.
