Why You Should Spay or Neuter Every Pet
THESE STATISTICS ARE VERY REAL AND YOU CAN MAKE A CHANGE
For every human born, 7 puppies and kittens are born.
One female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 cats in 7 years.
One female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in 6 years.
As many as 25% of dogs entering shelters each year are purebreds.
Approximately 61% of all dogs entering shelters are euthanized.
Approximately 75% of all cats entering shelters are euthanized.
An estimated 10 million dogs and cats are euthanized in United States animals shelters each year.
Millions more are abandoned, only to suffer from illness, starvation or injury before dying. There are not enough good homes for them all. This tragedy is preventable. By spaying or neutering our pets we can effectively and humanely end the companion animal overpopulation crisis.
