More About Us
WHAT DRIVES US: The Epidemic of Unwanted Pets in the United States Millions of pets are euthanized each year because, quite simply, there are not enough homes for them. This unfortunate situation is referred to as “pet overpopulation” and there are numerous reasons for the problem including economic conditions, uninformed pet owners, and irresponsible and unintended pet breeding.
