It is an unfortunate truth in life that there are people who abandon their pets. According to the ASPCA, around 6 million animals are turned into shelters per year with approximately 1.5 million of them being euthanized. It is a staggering amount that actually spikes in the summertime. Heritage is a company filled with people who have big hearts. Many of us volunteer with shelters or rescue groups where we eventually bring our new family members home. We wanted to devote this blog to raising awareness on this seasonal pet abandonment trend in the hopes of helping some of our furry friends find new homes. With many shelters over capacity since Memorial Day weekend, such as Harris County Shelter, now is a perfect time to consider adoption. If you are considering making a difference in a cute kitten or adorable dog’s life, we have included links to shelters around our offices below.
