Stats about Pet Overpopulation

Some interesting information published by the ASPCA in regards to the pet overpopulation in the U.S.

Facts about Pet Overpopulation in the U.S.:
  • It is impossible to determine how many stray dogs and cats live in the United States; estimates for cats alone range up to 70 million.
  • The average number of litters a fertile cat produces is one to two a year; the average number of kittens is four to six per litter.
  • The average number of litters a fertile dog produces is one a year; the average number of puppies is four to six.
  • Owned cats and dogs generally live longer, healthier lives than strays.
  • Many strays are lost pets who were not kept properly indoors or provided with identification.
  • Only 10 percent of the animals received by shelters have been spayed or neutered, while 78 percent of pet dogs and 88 percent of pet cats are spayed or neutered.
  • The cost of spaying or neutering a pet is less than the cost of raising puppies or kittens for a year.

This is very interesting study. I hope we could do something for the poor strays.

I do agree with all the concepts you've offered in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very brief for beginners. May you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.

The smart thing for us all to do is get a rescue dog rather than one from a breeder. Then you are part of the solution not the problem.
