Today’s edition of Kid Scoop looks at the many pets stuck in animal shelters across America. Animal shelters are places where dogs, cats and other animals are taken when they are unwanted or need to be taken from their owners.
While animal shelters can be noisy and scary places for animals, they can help those pets connect with new owners who will take care of them. Here are a few great stories of animals that were brought to a shelter and now have a better home.
