Over or Under? The Pet Population Infographic
It is estimated that 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the U.S. each day. That’s seven times the amount of humans being born daily. Sadly, only 1 out of every 10 dogs born will end up finding a permanent home. You might be wondering: what happens to the rest of the dogs that don’t find homes? According to research, 6-8 million cats and dogs enter U.S. shelters every year. Sixty-one percent of dogs that enter shelters end up getting euthanized. If you are considering becoming a pet owner, take into consideration the many orphaned pets that are looking for a warm home. In the following infographic, we’re presenting information that will help you understand the process of adopting an animal from a shelter. In addition, we’re highlighting more statistics about the state of pet overpopulation in the U.S. today, outlining the costs and benefits associated with spaying or neutering, and providing helpful information about adopting pets through the Humane Society.
