The Issue: Animals Being Euthanized Across the Country
Of the estimated six to eight million dogs and cats that enter shelters each year in the United States, about three to four million are euthanized, according to data from The Humane Society of the United States. This is often due to a lack of resources and space at the shelter. The ASPCA estimates that it costs $600 to $900 annually to provide food, medical care, supplies, and training for a rescued dog or cat while they await adoption into permanent homes.
The Campaign: Providing Medical Care for Rescued Cats
All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by MeoowResQ to provide food and medical treatments for rescued cats awaiting adoption. For every $65 raised, MeoowResQ can provide spay or neuter treatments, vaccinations, and one week of food for one cat. Angela Little will match donations up to $260.
