    Yes, animal shelters are needed because there would be an overpopulation of stray cats and dogs. Animal shelters are needed because of irresponsible pet ownership and uncontrolled breeding.  People often obtain pets without a full understanding of the time, space and money that they require.  

    Unfortunately, that frequently results in pets being abandoned by their owners.  Plus people do not spay or neuter their animals and causes more unwanted pet births. Stray animals and possibles diseases would be in large numbers if it were not for animal shelters.

    The sad part is that many shelters have limited resources—space and food particularly—and as such must decide which pets are most likely to be adopted and euthanize others in order to care for the increasing numbers of stray animals.
