Not getting it.

An astounding 70,000 new puppies and kittens will be born in the United States alone by the end of any one day. Humans, on the other hand, are responsible for siring as ‘little’ as 10,000 babies every day. If you do the math, we are still no match for our pets. Look at these figures…

During a span of 7 years, a single female and her line of offspring are capable of producing a whopping 420,000 kittens while dogs too outnumber humans by far. In an average span of 6 years, a bitch (female dog…) and her offspring can produce 67,000 offspring.

Going by the figures, each person living in the U.S. would need to have 7 pets each. About 6 to 8 million cats and dogs are taken to shelters each year, and were their reproduction to be left unchecked, they would just be overpopulated. Feral cats alone stand at 60-100 million. The overpopulation is the reason 4-5 million of them they have to be euthanized each year. Did you know how much the U.S. government spends on disposing unwanted animals? It’s just mind-boggling – a cool $2 billion! Yeah, that’s a ‘B’
