3.9 million dogs end up in shelters annually, and approximately 39% of dogs in shelters never find homes
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 07, 2015
PetPremium would like to help people in their search for the right dog with their newly published e-book “A Guide to Help You Find the Right Dog for You”. There are hundreds of dog breeds, so finding the right match can be a long and tricky process. PetPremium believes that if future dog owners have the right knowledge, the number of dogs ending up in shelters each year can be dramatically reduced. PetPremium hopes that the e-book can serve as a helpful guideline to people searching for the perfect furry friend.
According to the ASPCA, the leading reason dogs end up in animal shelters is due to unpreparedness and lack of knowledge from adopting families. Although 47% of US homes own at least one dog, several million more dogs live without homes, either as strays or in shelters (APPA), 3.9 million dogs end up in shelters annually, and approximately 39% of dogs in shelters never find homes (ASPCA). The ASPCA cites easily avoidable causes as the leading reasons pet owners give up their pets. 29% of people who hand over their pet to a shelter do so because their residence does not allow their dog or breed and another 10% cite their reason as not having enough time (ASPCA).
PetPremium CEO and co-founder Frans van Hulle says, “We really want to make a difference by educating and offer extensive content to dog owners. We have been investing a lot of time and effort in building out our breed center and publishing this eBook was a logical next step for us. We hope to expand our dog breed database to over 1,000 dog breeds before the end of 2015 with extensive information to help the future dog owner.”
The e-book provides quick and easy tips on how to pick the best dog breed, as well as more extensive information on breeds that may match with your lifestyle. Furthermore, it contains the best small, medium, and large sized breeds, as well as the best breeds for apartments and the most child friendly dogs. PetPremium has been working on an online dog breed database that includes over 600 dog breeds to date and a dog breed selector tool
