Shelter Reports

Monthly Shelter Reports

Overpopulation. The Humane Society estimates that U.S. shelters take in 6-8 million dogs and cats every year. Approximately half of these animals are euthanized. One of the best means we have of ending this problem is by making sure to spay and neuter our pets.

The Importance of Microchipping

  • Only about 22% of lost dogs that enter animal shelters were reunited with their families. The return-to-owner rate for microchipped dogs was over 52 percent (a 238 percent increase).
  • Less than 2% of lost cats that entered the animal shelters were reunited with their families. The return-to-owner rate for microchipped cats was dramatically higher at over 38 percent (more than 2000 percent better).
  • The American Humane Association estimates over 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the U.S. every year.
  • Don't let your pet be another sad statistic. Microchipping substantially increases the likelihood of them returning home by offering reliable, unique, and permanent identification for just $10.00.
