    This March 16, 2010, photo shows Olive, one of the dogs rescued from a shelter waiting at the Woof Worx pet store, in Los Angeles. A new AP-Petside.com poll found that the most common way people acquire pets is as a gift, followed by taking in a stray. About four in 10 pet owners say at least one of their current pets was given to them by friends or family, while a third say they have a pet that showed up on their doorstep as a stray. Shelters and breeders are next on the list as sources for pets. Thirty percent of those polled say they adopted through a shelter, 31 percent got their pets from a breeder and 14 percent bought their animals at a pet store. (AP Photo/Richard Vogel, File)
