Shelby County’s animal shelters are now touting themselves as the first in the state to earn the status of no-kill.
That means that at least 90 percent of the animals they take in are preserved, and that seems a lofty level of success, given that hundreds of homeless creatures are collected each year.
And many of you deserve to share in that accomplishment.
We know it’s cool to have a hot breed of dog purchased directly from a breeder, but isn’t there something more enduring in finding an animal that is in need of a home and giving it one?
Such a choice not only spares an animal from a dire situation, but it brings a rush of selflessness and charity to the adopting families.
And there’s one other great motivator.
You could be adopting a Marley, as in the hit book and movie, Marley & Me. Look what that dog did for its adoptive owner!
