We are currently fundraising for our Street Dogs campaign.
Depressing Street Dogs Statistics*:
- Homeless animals outnumber homeless people 5 to 1.
- The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates there are more than 400 million stray animals worldwide.
- Countries try to reduce the amount of dogs (and cats) living on the street by using inhumane tactics such as: shooting, electrocuting, drowning and poisoning.
- Dogs living on the street are susceptible to illnesses, injury, starvation, disease and abuse.
- The increasing numbers of dogs living on the street can be attributed to: abandonment, shortage of funding for shelters and animal control and lack of spaying/neutering.
- 2 to 3 million heathy dogs and cats are killed in shelters every year due to over population. The two biggest contributors to animals ending up in shelters: Owner turn in and picked up on the street by animal control.
Our campaign will focus exclusively on saving dogs abandoned/living on the streets. With the money we raise, we will work with local rescues to:
- Provide food and water
- Aid in the cost of vet care (including medical and spay/neuter) for rescued dogs
- Subsidize the adoption fee
In addition to supporting our campaign, here are some additional things YOU can do:
- Spay or neuter your pet
- Write to your legislators and let them know you support funding humane animal control and animal shelter services
- Adopt from local shelters
- Educate your friends!
