"The number of abandoned and neglected animals are overpopulated in the United States. Those animals are often euthanized at the shelter due to low adoption rates, even though the shelter is a places where abandoned and neglected animals are taken care of. The expansion of activities and efforts from private organization and shelter have major impacts on reducing euthanasia rate and increasing adoption rate of many sheltered animals. Lack of conception and responsibility lead to produce abandon and euthanize animals and, it brings negative impacts on agriculture, human health and safety, diseases, and natural resources. These problem causes bad routine and growth of population. Euthanizing animals would not reduce the number of animals at the shelter. There is a need for new type of animal shelter 'Branding,' to promote people to adopt animals from the shelter."
