OUR CHALLENGE TO YOU …
Generation Wags wants to help you understand and gain perspective on the diverse issues contributing to the epidemic of homeless pets. These issues are in communities everywhere, and not just “pet issues”. The issues range from owner surrenders to the need for spay/neuter, the end of puppy mills and breed discrimination and abuse. The cost of these issues are financial and societal. Every day, pets enter the world unwanted or live their lives in a world of neglect and abuse. They are innocent victims of our society. They also reflect real issues that our society need to tackle on the human level … identifying abusers who often escalate their violence on pets against humans, streets overrun by strays, and throngs of lost pets unsuccessfully reunited with loving homes adding to shelter and rescue populations.
OUR SIGNATURE ISSUE OF PET SAFETY …
this is a topic that every pet owner can take ownership of to ensure their pet does not end up as a shelter or rescue animal. We’ve partnered to help grow HeLPing Lost Pets, a free and innovative map based site for lost and found pets. We hope you will join it, share it, and encourage those in need to use it. Our LOVE TAG CHIP Challenge is out to ensure every pet owner has their pet microchipped (be sure it gets registered and updated when you move), and has a visible tag. BOTH are vital. Check out our page to learn more and take our challenge. Learn more about other measures every pet owner should take to keep their pet safe!
