Shelter Statistics: The cold hard facts

Data for 2014 reported by area shelters

shelterblogJan01Four years ago this month, my husband and I adopted our dog, Monty, from The Pet Rescue Center.  Soon after, I began volunteering at events and helping with fundraising, and in 2013, I started working part-time as Director of Development.  I dove headfirst into the world of animal rescue and would spend hours at night on the internet, viewing all the urgent posts to save various pets in need, reading horrific stories of neglect and abuse, and often my husband would find me at my computer, with tears streaming down my face.  I honestly had no idea that 10,000 cats and dogs were (and still are) being euthanized at our nation’s shelters EVERY day.
                    That’s almost 4 million animals killed each year.

It was a life-changing time for me, and I truly became an advocate for rescue and adoption.
