agree. I also know from this site and knowing people who have unsuccessfully looked for their cats that people DO look.
There were more stats than what I gave. Of that 7900 almost 5000 were PTS. Approx 1/3 of those were owners request. Either because they no longer wanted the cat or because their cat had been turned in but it had been injured too severly to help it. :sad: Now that
is a stat I find disturbing. The rest that were put down were because they were deemed unadoptable or feral. That is within 3 days of coming into the system. So please, pass the word. Check the other rooms. You just never know.
And people wonder why I find it hard to find homes for my guys with stats like this. :sad:
