How many dogs get put into shelters every year?



  1. 0 Votes

    The Humane Society Of The United States (HSUS) states that 6-8 million dogs and cats are put into animal shelters a year. This is just an estimate since there is no centralized data available for animal shelters in the United States, and there is no specific statistics just for dogs separately.

    The high number of animals being put into shelters each year is due to low adoption rates and high abandonment ones. The HSUS strives to decrease the amount of animals put into shelters by promoting responsible pet ownership and supporting public education and legislation for reducing pet overpopulation.
