2 years ago, I had a realization. I realized that one of the main reasons pets are euthanized is that they are not a good fit for their owner. An older couple with a big dog. An outdoor-loving couple with a couch potato dog. They just are not happy with their pet, which could lead to turning them into the pound. The goal of my project is to reduce the number of dogs euthanized. 3-4 million pets are euthanized each year! That's just too many! I've always loved pets. (especially dogs) So, when I got an idea for a way to help save pet's lives, I ran to my parents and told them. They inspired me to take my idea and turn it into reality. I have always wanted to make a difference in the lives of pets and with this grant, I can.
