Each year between two and three million people in the United States experience homelessness. Often times, this population is accompanied by a pet companion. The psychological and physical impact of homelessness is a matter of concern for humans and domestic animals, alike.
Separation from a pet companion creates significant distress and is heartbreaking to witness.
Additionally 6.5 million homeless dogs and cats enter shelters annually which often results in the euthanasia of nearly two million adoptable pets each year. Sadly, euthanasia has become the remedy for shelters imposing time constraints or experiencing overpopulation.
Luckily, time constraints are not imposed at Summit County Animal Control. Though, rescuing orphaned pets is expensive and labor-intensive so getting them into appropriate homes is a time-sensitive goal.
