Petco's helping - Overpopulation fundraiser


Recommended Posts

I took this from an e-mail I got today:

[color=indigo][u][b]Pet overpopulation is a heart-breaking problem:[/b][/u][/color]

[b]There are 45 cats and dogs for every one person born. [/b]

[color=blue]Only one out of 10 dogs born ever find a permanent home. [/color]
[b]Only one out of 12 cats born ever find a permanent home.[/b]

[b]450 dogs and cats are destroyed each HOUR in the U.S. because there are not enough homes for them! [/b]

During our Round Up / Spay Today 2003 Fundraiser, when you shop at PETCO you can save more than just money! Each time you make a purchase, we'll ask you to Round Up your purchase to the next highest dollar - and we will donate that difference to the PETCO Foundation. What seems like pennies to you will greatly reduce pet overpopulation!
When you Round Up, your money goes to support funding for spay and neuter programs and animal shelters. Won't you help us support them? Have your pets spayed and neutered, and donate generously to the PETCO Foundation's Round Up/Spay Today 2003 Fundraiser whenever you are in a PETCO store. Or, visit PETCO.com today and make an online donation to the PETCO Foundation. (It is not currently possible to "Round Up" purchases online.)

Thats great!
Did any of you know that other countries ship some of their stray dogs to shelters in the US? I feel for any dog in a shelter but I also think we have enough of an overload ourselves.
