Why Spay and Neuter?

SweetBabyRayEach year, millions of dogs and cats are euthanized in U.S. shelters. Millions more are abandoned in both rural and urban areas, left to starve and suffer. Most of these animals will die before they have the chance to find loving homes, but before they do, they will reproduce, further contributing to the already rampant animal overpopulation epidemic.

In response to this crisis, The Washington Animal Rescue League provides reduced-cost spay and neuter services. By spaying and neutering these animals, WARL is working to reduce the number needing homes and thereby reduce the number of animals who suffer and die.

Are there really millions of animals euthanized each year? That seems like a lot.
Experts estimate that the number of animals euthanized in the United States each year could be in excess of four million.
