Why We Need Your Help
Our nation's shelters are overcrowded, and that's a fact. Approximately 5 million to 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized (60 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats). Shelter intakes are about evenly divided between those animals relinquished by owners and those picked up by animal control. These are national estimates; the percentage of euthanasia may vary from state to state. Five out of ten dogs in shelters and seven out of ten cats in shelters are destroyed simply because there is no one to adopt them. We are hard at work bringing these numbers down. As of 2019, we have saved 14,000 lives and counting. And we couldn't have done it without your help.
