Every 4 seconds another companion pet enters a shelter/rescue in theUnited States. That is 21,600 pets per day; 151,200 pets per week and 7.8 million pets per year. Nearly, 50% of the companion pets that enter the rescues and shelters never find a new home and sadly are euthanized. Five out of 10 dogs are killed in shelters; 7 out of 10 cats are also killed. Of the many millions of dogs and cats surrendered to shelters or abandoned each year in the United States, approximately one million + surrenders/abandonments were due to the owner’s financial inability to care for their pets, this includes feeding and providing basic veterinary care.
Right now in the United States, we are facing a crisis with rescues and shelters. The number of animals being abandoned or surrendered in addition to the number of kittens and puppies entering into the shelters is at an alarming rate. Rescues and Shelters are facing decreasing financial help while increasing operational costs.
That is why the Rescue Pet Food Pantry under the Animal House Project's organizational structure is so critical. We received Manufacturer's donated food that cannot be given to Pet Food Pantries and in turn are able to get it into the Rescues/Shelters that need the food. The donated food that we have received has been given to rescues/shelters from Massachusetts to Georgia to Mississippi to Kansas.
