How does it not bother people

How does it not bother people that 4 MILLION dogs die? I get emails after emails of dogs with days, hours left to live yet there are so many ads in the newspaper, on craigslist, selling puppies.
Pet Stores always seem to be busy I just don't understand!!!???

Look at this pictures below... when you lay your head down to sleep tonight, they will be DEAD! Pure breeds, designer dogs, mutts, ALL sizes, ALL ages, some already housebroken, some good with kids, some good with cats, all NOT AGGRESSIVE!!

I was just wondering if there's a way to get some dogs out of your area and into another part of the country that might adopt them. I'm guessing there are a lot of breeders in your part of the country.

I do know that a lot of dogs do get transported to other states and to Canada.

We do have a lot of Puppy Mills and @$$hole back yard breeders. PLUS it doesn't help that "rescues" will buy dogs from the Millers so they are only adding to the problem b/c the millers are making money so they keep breeding. Viscous circle

Makes me so sad and angry. People just don't care - and the few that do .. we do all we can and still never seem to make a dent. But you can't stop because the ones you can help depend on you. Those are some beautiful dogs - makes me cry that they are gone- that is the story across the country.

I have known people that breed pitbulls and fight them and their children think this is normal. I have also know people to have a succession of dogs. Get a clue idiot it's you not the dog. They think dogs are disposal and have no emotional connection to them whatsoever. So it's off to the pound and get another dog.

I also don't understand why people get a dog and then have a child and then give up the dog once the child is born. I am now in the process of adopting a lab/pit that the previous owners did exactly that. I will be her fifth/sixth home that we know of. It makes me sick. I just don't get it.
