The choice to adopt a rescue rather than buying from breeders, puppy mills, or pet stores saves a life.
- An average of 600 dogs are euthanized every month in LA city shelters.
- 200 of these dogs are Pitbulls.
- Approximately 700 cats are euthanized each month in LA city shelters.
This number, sadly, is still devastatingly high. The good news is that the statistics from past years show that the number of adoptions has gone up and euthanization has gone down, all thanks to fantastic rescue groups, networking groups and people choosing to adopt shelter dogs.
MaeDay is committed to educating people about animal rescue with a strong focus on spaying and neutering animals! The fewer animals born, the fewer are put to death.
