  • Each year, over 7 million animal friends are euthanized (needlessly killed).
  • Massachusetts is ranked 16th in the U.S. for cat ownership and 50th in dog ownership for the US (American Veterinary Medical Association - 1/07 survey).
  • Despite the above statistic the cat is the least valued pet in the state of Massachusetts (MSPCA)
  • The state of Massachusetts has over 800,000 free roaming cats (MSPCA).
  • The state of Massachusetts has no known free roaming dogs to even create a statistic (Animal Rescue League). Free-roaming does not mean surrendered to a shelter
