Spay and Neuter … it’s the only way!
Pet overpopulation is the leading killer of cats and dogs in our country.
An estimated 3.7 million animals are euthanized in animal shelters each year across the United States.
The majority of pet overpopulation comes from unaltered pets living in low-income neighborhoods.
In some Triangle NC shelters, up to 75% of all incoming animals are euthanized to make room for more.
Fifty thousand puppies and kittens are born every day in our country.
U.S. taxpayers spend up to $2 billion each year on services to collect, house, destroy and dispose of unwanted animals.
