How would it feel to see every animal shelter in America empty? To see every single dog and cat adopted. Every February is National Spay/Neuter month, which means it is time to shed some light on the issue of overpopulation of the animals we love so much.
We will start by laying out the facts. Every year, 6-8 million dogs and cats are put into shelters across the country. Many of these shelters are understaffed and overcrowded, leaving more than half of these companion animals to be put down by euthanasia. The pets that are put down are sweet animals that would make great and loving companions. But the problem is there are simply too many dogs and cats in this country than we know what to do with, and it is causing great suffering.
