Animal Shelters

Approximately 1.5 million pets are unnecessarily euthanized in U.S. shelters each year.  Every time an animal is given a second (or third) chance at a forever home, this statistic can decrease.  We encourage everyone to look at local shelters and rescues when looking to bring a new pet into their home.

Remember, it's not just cats and dogs available to adopt.  Families can often find rabbits, hamsters, birds, reptiles, ferrets and guinea pigs, too!

Pet Overpopulation

  • The average number of litters a fertile cat produces is 1-2 per year; the average number of kittens in litters is between 4-6.
  • The average number of litters a fertile dog produces is 1 per year; the average number of puppies in litters is between 4-6.
  • Owned cats and dogs generally live longer, healthier lives than strays.
  • Many strays are lost pets that were not kept properly indoors or provided with identification, making their safe return home very difficult.
