- An estimated 3 to 4 million animals are euthanized in shelters every year.
- 7 out of 10 cats in shelters are destroyed simply because there is no one to adopt them.
- It is estimated there are roughly 70 million stray cats in the United States today.
You can help make a difference to a cat that needs a loving home. Older cats are especially in need of rescue since they are less likely to be adopted. If you have the time and the resources, consider opening your heart and your home to a special furry feline longing to be loved.
When you adopt a cat from a shelter Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center & Urgent Care will examine your new family member at no fee! Just bring in your adoption paperwork within two weeks of the adoption date to be eligible. If you are considering bringing a new pet into your home, check out the ASPCA's Questions to Ask Yourself Before Adopting as well as The Top 10 Things To Do Before Bringing Your New Cat Home.
