Each year DAWS finds homes for nearly 300 cats and kittens. This is just a tiny percentage of the estimated 3.4 million cats that enter U.S. shelters annually, of which, only 37% of get adopted. Celebrate Adopt-a-Cat month this June and help us prevent this CAT-astrophe!
June is Adopt-a-Cat Month
It is estimated that there are approximately 70 million stray cats in the U.S. Each year approximately 41% of the 3.4 milion cats that enter U.S. shelters are euthanized. You can help prevent this CAT-astrophe by:
- adopting a cat from DAWS or another local shelter
- ensuring your cats are spayed/neutered
- volunteering to support a Trap-Neuter-Return program
- encouraging friends and family to adopt a cat
On behalf of all the cats at DAWS – happy Adopt-a-Cat month!
