Pet Overpopulation Challenge

Found Animals Foundation has created the following infographic about the issue of pet overpopulation. My friend Gracey at The Tiniest Tiger's Conservation Club has written a post about these statistics - highlighting the good, the sad and the changeable. You can read the full post here.

Found Animals recommends the following strategies you can use to help decrease pet overpopulation:
  • Pet Adoption - encourage people to visit animal shelters and consider the adoption option.
  • Pet Care - share pet care tips with new pet parents so they can live a long, happy life together. 
  • Pet Spay/Neuter - make sure your dog/cat is spayed or neutered, and consider making a donation to a low cost spay/neuter program. 
  • Pet Identification - make sure your animal has a collar with a tag and/or is microchipped.
