Dogs In Danger

Dogs in Danger is a worthy cause. works with more than 120 shelters nationwide that destroy dogs. Although it appears there are no participating shelters in south Florida (typing in our Zip Code brought up a shelter in Texas), the site allows "Man's Best Friend" a last shot at a reprieve from the Grim Reaper. In fact it tracks each dog's destiny with death with a countdown before it is exterminated. For those that were not saved in time, the site offers an "In Memoriam" page. Some stats to think about:
  • More than 4 million dogs are euthanized in the US each year.
  • The top reason dogs are dumped in shelters: Moving.
  • As you are reading this, 24 dogs have been killed.
