The Animal Resource Center is committed to reducing pet overpopulation in our community.
We spay or neuter ALL dogs adopted at our facility prior to adoption. About 2,000 dogs are spayed or neutered annually at the Dog Shelter.
The shelter received more than 10,000 unwanted animals last year!
The best way to reduce the number of unwanted animals is to spay and neuter your pets before they have a chance to accidentally reproduce.
Fact: One female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in six years! One cat and her young can produce 420,000 kittens during the same time frame.
Fact: For every human born, there are 7 puppies and kittens born.
Fact: An estimated 6 to 8 million dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters each year. That’s about 55 percent of the animals entering shelters, based on reports from the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy.
The Ohio Pet License Plate is a specialty plate that will help raise funds to be used for spay and neuter to prevent pet overpopulation and for education.
