Why we're here and you won't want to miss joining us
Our motivation? Approximately 6.5 million animals enter U.S. shelters nationwide every year. Of those, 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. Each year, 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized (670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats). 3.2 million shelter animals are adopted each year (1.6 million dogs and 1.6 million cats). APPA reports that 34% of dogs are purchased from breeders, while 23% of dogs and 31% of cats are obtained from an animal shelter or humane society. These estimates are based in part on Shelter Animals Count data and other known and estimated sources, 2015-2018. Underfunded shelters are a real problem and responsible pet owners know it.
We thought of a way to raise funds to care for these loving animals while they find their forever homes and reduce the need to euthanize, and are now at work making it a reality. If you're a dog lover you won't want to miss being a part of this.
