"The lovable, personable dogs who will be at my event
for PETA and Friendicoes are just a fraction of the dogs in India who need the
right person to come along and make them part of the family", says
Sanjana. "If you're ready to make a lifelong commitment, I hope you will
consider visiting your local animal shelter – you might just find your new best
India, approximately 25 million homeless dogs struggle to survive on the
streets, where many of them go hungry, are abused by cruel people or are hit by
vehicles. Countless others wait in animal shelters for a new home that never
comes. Every time a dog or a cat has a litter, it means fewer homes for the
dogs and cats who are languishing in animal shelters or roaming the streets.
That's why PETA encourages prospective cat and dog guardians always to adopt
homeless animals from animal shelters or the streets – and never buy them from
breeders or pet shops. Animal guardians can also help by always having their
dogs and cats sterilised.
