Did you know… that nearly half of all animals entering shelters across America are euthanized each year? That is a conservative figure based on current records.
Most of us believe that pet overpopulation means there aren’t enough homes for all the shelter animals. But in fact, there are more than enough homes. There are just not enough people are willing or choosing to adopt from a shelter! According the the American Humane Association, Seventeen million Americans acquire a new pet each year, and that is more than DOUBLE the number of shelter animals! Sadly, only 3.5 million people (about 20 percent) choose to adopt their new pet. The rest choose to buy their pets from breeders, or they choose other cheap/free sources such as friends, neighbors or Internet ads.
Did you know… The Lamar County Humane Association will be at Petco today with dozens of beautiful animals available for adoption? Some of these animals reside at the City of Paris Animal Shelter, while others have been taken into foster homes.
Did you know… the the City of Paris Animal Shelter has Saturday hours?
