Why are so many dogs in shelters?
Dog owner education is the key to the shelter overpopulation problem, by choosing the right dog and getting involved in your dog’s care, from dog training to veterinary visits. Being a responsible pet owner and having your pet spayed or neutered is crucial to reducing the over population problem in our local shelters.
We try to do our part by thoroughly processing applications, not completing same day adoptions, ensuring that we are choosing the best applicants possible for our orphans and my matching up each family with their ideal pet.
Why are there so many cats in shelters?
Just as dog owner education is the key to the shelter dog overpopulation problem, cat owner education is the key to the cat overpopulation problem. Once more, spaying and neutering your cat(s) is VERY important to reducing the over population problem in our local shelters. Studies found that cat owners who had unrealistic expectations, including companionship for a child, were more likely to surrender their cat to a shelter.
