According to recent statistics, the euthanasia rate for sheltered pets in the state of Ohio has drastically increased. The national average for most shelters in the nation is around 65%, which we think is still far too high, but certain shelters in Ohio are reporting euthanasia rates as high as 80%! These animals only want a new home, but 80% of them never even make it out of the shelter.
Our agency finds this trend alarming and we are announcing a campaign to help find homes for these pets and to bring down the euthanasia rates in our area.
We are so hopeful to be able to fund some of the relief needed by animals to overcome the devastating circumstances of neglect and improve care in their lives! Animal neglection is a problem because it can significantly limit their life expectancy or create a detriment to their physical development. We want to bring them hope and relief. In Ohio alone, many animals are going through this reality right now, and even though the challenge is huge… there’s much that we can do. “Too many animals in our community are facing abuse and neglect every day. We are going to do all we can to help them,” said agency owner, Aaron Bickle.
Join the #AgentsOfChange movement and let’s care for everyone in our community – especially our furry four-legged friends!
