A car pulls up to an animal shelter and someone quickly unloads a box full of puppies or kittens. It’s the litter of a beloved family pet.
This scene plays out multiple times every day. What do we end up with? More than 8 million pets who do not have homes — every year. Estimates say about half of these pets — 11,000 daily — are euthanized because there simply aren’t enough homes.
PetSmart Charities® knows this is a problem with a cure. Increased spay/neuter services prevent litters, reducing pet overpopulation from the start. We have funded more than 2 million spay or neuter surgeries since 1994, preventing an estimated 7.5 million births.
