When choosing to adopt a cat, you’re not only rescuing one of them, but you’re potentially saving hundreds. When you buy a cat or dog, it increases the demand for the cruel cat and puppy mills that supply them. Choose a rescue shelter or an adoption center instead — they’re full of beautiful, healthy cats and dogs. You’ll be sure to find one with a personality to match your own.
FACT CHECK TIME:
— 6 million to 8 million cats and dogs enter shelters each year, according to the ASPCA. So there’s no need to breed more.
— 3 million to 4 million cats and dogs are adopted each year from shelters, according to the Humane Society. So if we do the math, we know what happens to the rest.
BUT WE CAN FIX THIS:
— By spaying and neutering our pets. (One unspayed cat and her offspring can produce up to 420,000 kittens in 7 years, according to the Oxford-Lafayette Humane Society.)
— By adopting from shelters.
