Here's the story of Splash, a very lucky lab.
Splash was on death row at an Evansville animal shelter.
His story is not unique. Three to four million dogs and cats are put to sleep in animal shelters across the country every year.
"He was an older dog. That's hard to adopt. We kind of figured that he was not going to have a very good shot at getting adopted," said Janet Belsky, who adopted Splash.
Peter and Janet also adopted another rescue lab. The most popular colors of labs are yellow and chocolate. They tend to be adopted quicker than black labs, who are automatically euthanized by some shelters.
