I have recently become very active in placing shelter dogs with rescue groups, foster programs or adoptions. I recently placed 4 pure bred black labs which would otherwise have been euthanized. When I have gone to the local shelter, I find there are many types of dogs that are hunting dog breeds and need permament homes desparately.
I would like to ask what can be done so that these dogs are more adoptable to the local sportsman throughout North Carolina? My uncles in particular would squirrel and rabbit hunt often. They would have as many as 20+ beagles and beagle mixes.
If local hunters would consult their local animal shelters, this would help with the total number of abandoned dogs. Of course, spaying and neutering is also very important. I would appreciate anyone's thoughts or feedback. Thank you.
