The Pet Overpopulation Dilemma
Pet overpopulation is the leading killer of cats and dogs in our country. Fifty thousand puppies and kittens are born every day here in the United States alone. A male and a female cat can produce twelve cats per year. In only 10 years if unchecked, just those 2 cats and their offspring are capable of reproducing 61 trillion cats. There are over 80 million cats (plus 72 million dogs) alive in the US today. We challenge you to do the numbers. Taxpayers spend up to $2 billion each year on services to collect, accommodate, destroy, and dispose of them. Spay and neuter is the best way to prevent pet overpopulation and protect healthy animals from being euthanized.

Our goal is to stem the tsunami of companion pet deaths that occur each year due to lack of knowledge. Most of those pets are healthy and many of them have loving homes but are lost in the system. Our strategy is to enlighten through our publications, seminars, website, videos and television programming.
