Brighten up your day with this great video, ‘Trail Floof’ showcasing the lives of 5 adopted trail dogs in Vancouver, Canada.
“It’s pretty universally agreed that dogs are awesome – whether as trail dogs or best buddies.
But what many may not realise is how many former friends or would-be buddies are put to death every year. Whether lost, abandoned by their owners or suffering life on the streets, there’s simply too many dogs for shelters to care for, which leads to many being euthanised, in some cases within days of arriving at a shelter. 10% may not sound like a lot, but in reality that equates to over 10,000 euthanised animals a year in Canada alone. In the US, the figure is closer to a staggering 1.2 million.
Trail Floof shows there can be a happy ending for stray and shelter dogs – join 5 North Vancouver puppers as they tell their stories living with their new owners who, whether first timers or experienced trailbuilders, are all taking their new friends out with them on the trails.
