    High Kill Rates in Animal Shelters

    NewsAnimal CrueltyThursday 27 September 2012

    Thousands of animals are killed every year in animal shelters due to bad health, lack of space or lack of money . In order for abandoned animals to recover, it usually requires costly medicines and a lot of work.

    Out of 64,617 cats37,177  were killed in 2010-2011, which is over half of the number of cats that the shelters took in.

    The problem stems from irresponsible ownership, where someone will buy an animal before realising the work and money that goes into it, and will then abandon them. The problem is also due to an 'oversupply' of animals from big breeders and farms.

    The aim is to stop these killings and find a good home for each of these animals, as healthy animals are being put down due to the shortness of supplies and care available for the animals.
