The Issue: Pet Overpopulation and the Prevalence of Euthanasia
Five out of ten dogs and seven out of ten cats in shelters are killed by euthanasia if no one adopts them, simply due to lack of resources, according to data from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. With new kennels, particularly during the busy kitten season, no-kill shelters can house more animals and reduce the number of adoptable cats and dogs killed each year.
The Campaign: Kennel to House More Kittens at No-Kill Shelter
All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by Homeward Pet Adoption Center to purchase housing units for homeless or abandoned cats. For every $750 raised, Homeward Pet Adoption Center can purchase one new Kitty Condo Model 520, a large cat kennel with living space for up to two litters of kittens at a time. This kennel has the potential to save more than 250 kittens each year, based on the shelter's average adoption rate from May to December.
