Pet adoption 101: How and why to adopt a new best friend

I never really understood the problem of pet overpopulation or shelter crowding until I moved to Las Vegas and got involved in the world of animal rescue. Shelters and rescues are filled with cats and dogs, but most people don’t realize there are also many other adoptable animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, reptiles, birds, pigs and more.
