According to Metroplex Animal Coalition statistics, an average of 200,000 healthy, potentially adoptable animals are euthanized in the Dallas Fort Worth area every year due to overpopulation. That equates to 548 animals EVERY DAY. A dog or cat is euthanized every three minutes in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Every dog we rescue stops the cycle of births and stop another unnecessary death.
Every pet owner can have an impact on the 200,000 animals that the city puts to death every year. Our education goal is for pet owners to see the impact of their decisions to comply with confinement laws, vaccination laws, and spay and neuter laws. All of these individual decisions have a collective impact on the animal population and enforcing these laws is an important part of changing perceptions and lowering the overwhelming number of animals put to death every year.
