Reducing Pet Overpopulation and Euthanasia

Updated: Feb 11, 2020

In 2007 when I started volunteering at the League City Animal Shelter, there were 5-6 million companion animals killed in US animal shelters annually. That number has progressively declined to 1.5 million today. This problem continues to cost tax payers millions of dollars every year and it takes the lives of 670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats annually. The fastest way to “no kill” is no birth of unwanted litters.
