-5 out of 10 dogs in shelters are killed.

- 7 out of ten cats in shelters are killed.

-Only 10%-20% of pets in shelters are adopted.

-The cost of spaying and neutering a pet is less than the cost of raising puppies or kittens for a year.

-The estimate of stray cats alone is in the 70 millions.


























Thesis Statement:

The greatest need of an animal shelter is space. More people should neuter and spay their pets if they are not breeders. Therefore, shelters will have more space.




Our Trip to the South County Animal Shelter:

On our trip we had a great time and learned a lot about the animals living there: We learned their struggles, what they need (space, toys, beds,food) and also found out about there history. We saw twenty two cats and six dogs. We later found that four of the dogs were adopted. We found out all of this information by Mrs Walter. We had a great time at the animal shelter!

How to adopt a pet

1.    You research pets and what their needs are.

2.    You check if your house is suitable for this type of pet.

3.    Go to local animal shelters, and see the types of pets they have.

4.    Get all the supplies you need and choose your pet.

5.    Take the pet home, let it settle in, and give it a name and its own space.

6.    Once it gets accustomed to you and your home, give it lots of love and care.

7.    Have a great time with your new pet!
