Survey: People adopt from shelters because they like being part of shelter-adoption community
Oct. 16, 2017
October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and a survey shows that people adopt from shelters not just because it feels good, but also because they like the idea of being part of the shelter-adoption community. Michael Morefield, director of marketing and communications for the Arizona Animal Welfare League, the state’s oldest and largest no-kill shelter talks about the benefits of adopting a shelter pet. We also hear from pet adopter Sharon Wilson, who adopted a dog named Gilda from the shelter.
