Today a second chance is not only for people but for dogs as well. According to Pawsite marketing there has been a great increase in the willingness of the American public to adopt or care for handicapped pets that have major illnesses or handicaps that in the past would have necessitated euthanasia.

Taking out pet insurance has also developed into a growing industry and is as important to many families as their own health insurance, thus showing how important our dogs have become to us.
