Dedicated to Keeping Families and Pets Together
Our Pets Need Us
Pets need us to be educated and to completely understand the costs and time needed to care for the pets we bring into our home! Here is why
More than 44% of pets are in shelters or foster homes because they were defined with problematic or aggressive behaviors, grew larger than expected, or developed health problems the owner couldn’t handle. 6.5 million companion pets enter shelters annually in the United States and 1.6 million are euthanized. Approximately 37% of pets are purchased from breeders, instead of adopting from a shelter (27%). Adopt DON’T shop!
1 out of 7 households DO NOT spay or neuter their pets, resulting in more unwanted pets, who are then given up to a shelter or who become strays. The average cost per year to keep a household pet safe, happy and healthy is $1,000 (food, shots, vet check ups, treats and toys).
The average American is one paycheck away from poverty and when it comes to deciding where to save money, pets seem to be easily disposable. Up front education about these situations and help finding needed resources will save animal lives and keep pets and their families together!!!
