Help us in our Mission to Prevent Homeless Pets<\/h1>\n

The homeless pet population is a crisis that we should all be concerned about, as it increases daily. Animal shelters are overpopulated, leaving them short of the funds they need to take care for all the extra animals. Unfortunately too many healthy dogs and cats are euthanized each year simply because the shelters don’t have enough resources to care for them all. Adoptions alone can’t solve the problem.<\/p>\n

One of the biggest contributing factors to animal overpopulation is pet abandonment. Thousands of animals are abandoned by their owners every day, and most of them are unvaccinated and unneutered. These neglected animals can spread disease, damage property, fight with other pets for food or territory, and in many circumstances produce unadoptable offspring (leading to even more unwanted animals that continue this cycle).<\/p>\n

Spread the Word and Make a Difference<\/h1>\n

If left unfixed, female dogs can have 5\u20138 puppies per litter, and just one female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in only 6 years. Cats reproduce even faster than dogs and even while a cat is still nursing her kittens she can become pregnant again. Female cats can have 3\u20135 kittens per litter, and one\u00a0<\/strong>female cat and her offspring can produce over two million<\/strong> cats in 8 years, that is astounding!<\/p>\n

We hope that by spreading the word of this important act it will help reduce the homeless animal population and spread awareness to the crisis that animal shelters and neighborhoods face everyday.[\/vc_column_text][\/vc_column][vc_column width=”1\/2″]\t\t
