And this is considered a conservative estimate. Did you know that 1 Female Dog & 1 Male Dog not Spayed or Neutered and their offspring can produce 67,000 Dogs in just 6 short years.
Even worse 1 Female Cat & 1 Male Cat not Spayed or Neutered and their offspring can multiply into 420,000 Cats in just 7 years.
Our Point – Every single animal Spayed or Neutered can make a huge positive impact on the animal over population problem we have in this country.
To have enough homes for every animal being born it is estimated that every man, woman, and child including those that are just being born at this very minute would have to have an average of 29 animals each for all animals to have a home and once again this is considered a conservative estimate.
Then when you factor in those who can not afford animals, those who do not want animals, and those that are not suitable to have children much less pets.
This is a never ending battle and one that we must fight everyday. Shelters are not to blame, Rescues are not to blame, Responsible Pet Owners are not to blame. Do your part, help the Shelters, help the Rescues!
“The Solution Is You,” and it starts on the outside of our walls.
Finally, there is an added benefit to having your pet spayed or neutered, it greatly decreases or eliminates the risk of many types of Cancer. So do the right thing and you will not only have a healthier pet, but you can be part of the solution to pet overpopulation.
