Right on! Thanks so much for publishing this article. I am a regular volunteer at Multnomah County Animal Shelter and I can absolutely attest to the fact that are are many fabulous animals waiting for homes. Before I started immersing myself in the world of shelter animals I was pretty naive to their plight and didn't give it a second thought if someone I knew expressed an interest in purchasing a pet from a store or a breeder. Now that I know that there are loads of lovable, goofy, smart, affectionate animals in shelters just waiting for someone to give them a chance, I implore anyone looking for a new pet to swing by a shelter first. I am so proud of our area shelters - they are doing awesome work and they deserve even more community support.
