With the number of pets on the rise, the American Pet Products Association (APPA) is calling for a change in the way the country treats them.
As the Associated Press reports, the APPA, a trade group representing pet and pet product manufacturers, released its 2016 pet survey on Tuesday.
It found that more than 1.5 million pet owners are choosing to give them more time to get used to their new pets.
And as the AP reports, a new breed of canine, the German shepherd, has become the pet of choice for pet lovers who want to keep their pets happy.
But for some pet owners, the adoption process can be frustrating and time consuming.
In the APSA survey, nearly 60 percent of owners said they have had a dog relinquished, leaving them without a home and their pet forever.
Here are the top pet adoption questions for your consideration.
What if my dog doesn’t fit the profile?
In the 2016 survey, 70 percent of respondents said they had had a pet relinquished and 20 percent said they haven’t relinquished their pet.
What are some of the challenges that owners of dogs and cats face when trying to adopt?
Owners of dogs or cats are typically more financially motivated to adopt, which can lead to a longer adoption process.
Some owners also have more concerns about health or safety, and it’s difficult for them to find a new home for their pet as their dog or cat ages or is diagnosed with a health problem.
Pet adoption can also be stressful for some owners, particularly for those who have pets of a different breed or breed type.
Many of these owners also may be concerned about the social stigma associated with pet ownership.
How should I care for my dog or kitten?
Some of the most common pet care concerns that pet owners have include: Not having enough room for a cat or dog.
Owners who live in larger cities may have a problem with their pet staying in their home because of overcrowding.
Owners with children may not be able to take their pets out of the house, especially if they’re on the autism spectrum or a combination of allergies and other conditions.
Can I adopt my dog out of foster care?
Adoption is a process that can take years.
Foster care is a short-term solution to a larger, more complicated problem.
However, it can be costly, time consuming, and may not always be a good option for pet owners who have children or a variety of other health issues.
What should I do if I find a stray dog or a cat?
While many pet owners can identify a stray cat or a dog with its scent, many are also more concerned with the welfare of the animal.
While there are no statistics available on the number or type of stray dogs or cat that end up in pet stores, pet store workers, shelters, and even the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) report that over a third of those that end their lives are abandoned.
It’s important to be proactive when searching for stray pets.

What is the best way to dispose of unwanted pets?
Most pet owners prefer to take the animal to a vet for medical testing, but that can be difficult for some pets, particularly dogs.
The HSUS recommends that pet stores dispose of all unwanted pets at a humane disposal facility or by composting.
But many pet stores also offer a free service, which involves placing a pet in a crate or box, and then disposing of the dog by wrapping it in an appropriate blanket and leaving it in a warm place.
What do I do when I lose a pet?
If your pet goes missing, you may need to report it to the local law enforcement agency.
It may be difficult to find the person responsible for the animal’s fate.
You may also need to contact a pet rescue or animal control organization.
What can I do to help animals like mine?
As the AP’s Peter Luger points out, a lot of people are reluctant to adopt pets of other species.
He writes that “the pet community has been slow to adopt the idea that people should be able take animals with them when they’re no longer wanted.”
To help pet owners keep their beloved pets safe, the Humane League is working to increase adoption of dogs.
It recently launched the Puppy Rescue Program, which is intended to find loving homes for stray dogs and puppies.
This program will allow people who live with pets to take them for adoption at no cost to them.
The program has received $30,000 in support from the ASPCA, and has also created a webpage for pet adoption, where pet owners will be able post photos of their lost pets.
Here’s more about how the program is helping to save the lives of abandoned pets.
