There are thousands of dogs in need every single day in shelters all over the country. Adopting another and/or fostering is a thought of ours but became an active push when I saw Trumpet on Facebook the morning of September 4th. She, along with many other healthy, young dogs, were going to be put down due to "enter dumb, pathetic reason here." Trumpet caught our attention since she was a pit and because my husband plays trumpet. I tried contacting the right people and I filled out two rescue applications to save her. Things seemed promising throughout the day, the shelter she was at had to know someone wanted her, but at around 8:00pm I found out she was killed along with 3 others. It's sad enough and to think, but more dogs are going to be put down today, tomorrow, and the next day and not just in NYC. All over the country. Please spay, neuter, adopt, foster, advocate, whatever you can do. When the day comes that dogs are on the endangered species list then let's think about breeding. RIP Trumpet.
