Why Do so Many Animals End up in Shelters? November 11, 2019

Why Do so Many Animals End up in Shelters?, Stratford, Connecticut

If your heart breaks when you think of all of the animals sitting in shelters, you aren’t alone. Every year, millions of animals find their way to shelters, either at the hands of their owners or local animal control centers. Fortunately, by recognizing the problem and getting your pet spayed at a spay clinic, you can help to become part of the solution. Here is a quick guide to animal shelters, spaying, and neutering. 

Why Do Pets End up in Shelters?

A staggering 6.5 million companion animals and pets end up in shelters every year in the United States, and oftentimes, they don’t survive the experience. Because of overpopulation problems, many pets are put down.

When landlords don’t allow pets or the cost of pet maintenance grows too high, owners may be forced to seek the help of a shelter. Behavioral problems, such as biting or property damage, also lead to pets ending up in a shelter. Oftentimes, owners are faced with pets who have babies, and they simply don’t have space for additional animals in their home. 

How Can You Prevent the Problem? 

Fortunately, you can help to control the number of animals that end up in shelters by getting your animals spayed at a spay clinic. In addition to preventing unwanted pregnancies, spaying offers a variety of health benefits for animals, including preventing the onset of certain cancers and helping to tame pets who are prone to wandering.
