Dog and Cat Overpopulation
Are dogs and cats the nation's most popular animals? It doesn't seem so when millions of healthy dogs, cats, puppies and kittens have to be killed each year in private and public shelters due to lack of responsible homes. Countless others starve or freeze to death, are killed by humans or animals, or die from untreated illnesses and injuries after being abandoned to fend for themselves. If given the chance, most of these animals would have made excellent companions.
