As 2022 draws to an end, it’s common to reflect upon the year. For orphaned animals, this year has been no different than past years. With increased education, the availability of low-cost veterinary services and an accelerated movement to value domestic pets, we still experience disappointing numbers of highly adoptable pets being euthanized each year.
Just as animals become orphans, so do people. In fact, nearly 3 million people in the United States will experience homelessness this year. It’s not uncommon for these people to be accompanied by a pet companion. The psychological and physical impact of homelessness is a matter of concern for humans and animals, alike.
Usually, temporary housing does not permit domestic pets to stay with their owners. Separation from a pet companion creates significant distress and it’s heartbreaking to witness. Many of these beloved pets end up in shelters. If not adopted, time, euthanasia has become the remedy for shelters imposing time constraints or experiencing overpopulation.
