A pair of breeding cats and their offspring can theoretically produce up to 420,000 cats over a 7 year period, according to the Humane Society of the United States. This overpopulation problem carries a hefty price tag statewide, with millions of dollars being spent by animal control and shelters for cat related expenses.
Millions of unwanted and homeless cats are born in our country each year….it’s estimated that over 3,500 kittens are born in the U.S.A. Every Hour! On average nationally, a little over every 3 seconds of every day around the clock and around the country, a kitten or cat may be euthanized solely because they were born
into a world that already has millions of stray, abandoned or unwanted cats. That’s millions of cats and
kittens euthanized each year.
