Meet Sam! We rescued this incredibly handsome boy from the SEAACA shelter along with 3 other amazing Huskies on the same day. Sam had multiple, male kennel mates during his stay. He’s young, healthy, loving and social with both dogs and people.
Shelters in California and elsewhere have been overcapacity for the past 3 years. Many theorize that’s it’s a result of the country’s shut down in the spring of 2020. People adopted or bought dogs because they were lonely and stuck at home. The Game of Thrones movie may have influenced people to get Huskies over other breeds. As a result, dogs began to be turned into shelters in 2020-2023 when people went back to work.
The situation is dire. In fact, California and Texas tie as the two states that euthanize the most dogs due to overcrowding. It’s heartbreaking.
