Are there more dogs or cats in shelters in America?

    Unfortunately, the last survey recorded that answers your question was in 1997. Between 4 surveys taken from 1994-97, you can see a trend where there are more dogs than cats. One interesting explanation could be the fact that cats more often than dogs come into shelters without owner identification.

    Hope this helped 😀

    The Humane Society’s most recent estimates show that between 6 and 8 million cats and dogs enter the American animal shelter system each year. Of these animals, more dogs than cats are believed to populate the shelters. A possible explanation the organization gives is that cats are easier to relocate than dogs (people moving from a house to an apartment, for instance, are on average more likely to keep a cat han a dog, etc).
