Can anyone guess the amount of puppies that an unaltered dog and her offspring, or the amount of kittens that an unaltered cat and her offspring can have in the course of 7 years?
Can anyone tell me the human population of Corpus Christi?
According to an article titled “Spay and Neuter”, on the 2011 updated Peta website that we accessed on June 15th,
an unaltered dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in 6 years.
In 7 years, an unaltered cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 kittens.

The Gulf Coast Humane Society, Pee Wee’s Pet Adoption, The Cattery Cat Shelter, and For The Love of Strays are all striving to find forever homes for unwanted pets and animals that were abandoned by their previous owners, or were picked up as strays.
Out of those 4, For The Love of Strays is the only one that is a true non-profitable organization that does NOT have a facility that houses their stray animals.

Angel was just thrown out of a moving vehicle. The poor girl was so scared and emaciated that she ran into the nearby petsmart store, found a bag of dog food, and...
