    Default Be Thankful for Our...

    Rescuers, fosterers and responsible dog owners, because:

    Some 70,000 puppies and kittens are born every day in the U.S.

    Between four million and six million pets are euthanized every year because they are homeless.

    That means between 11,000 and 16,000 pets are euthanized every day simply because they are homeless.

    An animal in a shelter is killed every 1.5 seconds.

    Only one animal in 10 born in the U.S. gets a good home that lasts a lifetime
