Want to adopt a pet in need? Visit one of these Pet Shelters, Pet Rescues - this list include no-kill shelters and breed-specific rescues. Here are some interesting statistics about animal shelters in the US (provided by the ASPCA, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals):
  • Approximately 8-12 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year and approximately 5-9 million are euthanized (60% of dogs and 70% of cats). Shelter intakes are about evenly divided between those given up by owners and those picked up by animal control.
  • Less than 2 percent of cats and 15-20% of dogs are returned to their owners. Most of these were identified with tags, tattoos or microchips.
  • About 25% of dogs that enter local shelters are purebred.
  • Only 10% of the animals received by shelters have been spayed or neutered, compared to 75% of owned pets.
