Some shelters across America are not the safe havens they should be for our companion animals.
The high-kill animal “shelter” system in America is lacking compassionate leadership, transparency, and accountability. High-kill animal “shelters” are places where healthy, treatable, and adoptable dog and cat companion animals are needlessly killed, being denied basic medical care and humane living conditions, and experiencing neglect and abuse.
Did you know? This is all happening at the expense of us as taxpayers.
By embracing the no-kill model that numerous shelters across the country have successfully implemented, we can save the lives of healthy, treatable, and adoptable companion animals.
There are roughly 2 million animals killed in U.S shelters annually.
The estimated 2018 United States population is 327.16 million.
Roughly 30 million people acquire a new companion animal every year.
