Companion Animal Overpopulation
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 dogs in 6 years.
An estimated 6 to 8 million dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters each year. Millions more are abandoned, only to suffer from illness or injury before dying.
In a study of relinquishment of dogs and cats in 12 U.S. animal shelters, 30% of the surrendered dogs were purebreds.
The same study indicated that 55% of the surrendered dogs and 47% of the surrendered cats were unaltered.
It costs U.S. taxpayers an estimated $2 billion each year to round up, house, euthanize and dispose of homeless animals.
Approximately 55% of dogs and puppies entering shelter are killed, based on reports from 1,038 facilities across America.
Approximately 71% of cats and kittens entering shelter are killed, based on reports from 1,038 facilities across America.
