On a mission to help As Many Rescues As Possible.
By promoting responsible pet ownership and spay/neuter initiatives, we can help control the amount of animals entering shelters and mitigate the staggering number of dogs and cats put down every year!
Every year in the US, 1.2 MILLION dogs are euthanized in shelters, mainly due to overpopulation. Most estimates put over half of the dogs euthanized as "pit-bull type" dogs, some as high as 1 million.
That's the population of Dallas, TX - 1.2 million - which perishes in shelters. Every. Year.
Why is Spay/Neuter Important?
One (1) unaltered female and her offspring can generate over 60,000 dogs in six years.
That means that one unaltered dog can fill every seat in Dodger Stadium within six years with their offspring....
If we want to stop unnecessary euthanasia for dogs in general, we need to cut it off at the pass, and spay/neuter in large numbers.
What's more, there are a variety of health and behavioral benefits that come from altering your pet - making them happier and healthier all around!
WANT TO EARN A PATCH? OF COURSE YOU DO! We require individuals to raise at least $50, and teams to raise the equivalent of $50 per person!
