Half of all adopters give up the animal within the first two years.
Nationally, nine out of ten shelter dogs are killed and one
makes it out alive. One in twelve cats makes it out alive.

but were we burdened with like weight of pain,
as much or more we should ourselves complain. William Shakespeare
