Between 3-4 million adoptable animals are euthanized in US animal shelters every year simply because there are not enough homes.

In Atlanta alone - an estimated 100,000 animals are destroyed in the Atlanta metro area, on our tax dollars. We are HUGE spay and neuter advocates, it truly saves lives.
