Did You Know?

  1. Every day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in this country while only 10,000 people are born.

  2. It's simple math - there just arenít enough homes for all of these animals.

  3. Every year 10-12 million animals are euthanized in shelters for lack of available homes.

  4. On average, 64% of all animals taken into shelters nationwide have to be euthanized for this reason.

  5. At least 50% of the overpopulation problem is non-neutered males. Females canít do it alone.

  6. Purebreds account for 30% of all the animals in shelters. "Papers" donít mean an animal should be bred.

  7. For every home you find for an animal that you have bred, a home is lost for a shelter animal.

  8. Breeding to "see the miracle of birth" demands that you also "see the tragic results". Visit a shelter.

  9. Animal overpopulation has reached a crisis point in this country.

  10. You personally can make a difference by spaying or neutering your pet. It is the single most important thing you can do to prevent animal cruelty!
