Animal Adoption Figures Infographic

I want to share this infographic from Mattie Dog which brings some shocking numbers to our attention.

I was quite shocked to see 30-40% of shelter animals euthanized – pretty upsetting numbers. However, this information reinforces the importance of spaying and neutering pets. It’s also a reminder that there are so many wonderful shelter pets out there that need a good home.


Do you find these figures surprising? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
