Frequently Asked Questions

Is There a Pet Overpopulation Problem?

According to the Humane Society of the United States, approximately 6-8 million cats and dogs are surrendered to shelters yearly. Of those animals, 3-4 million cats and dogs are euthanized. We strive to educate the community about the importance of spaying and neutering their pets to reduce the number of homeless animals, and we are leading by example by spaying and neutering all dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, and rabbits before adopting them out.

With help from our community, we hope to reduce the number of unwanted and neglected animals needing our assistance. Thus, we will eliminate the need to euthanize animals due to overpopulation, medical issues, or behavioral issues that, with adequate resources, we could afford to rehabilitate or treat.
