Some sad statistics to share from 2010.
The top four largest shelters in Delaware took in around 9,000 cats. Of those 9,000, about 2,100 were reunited with their owners. Around 2,900 were adopted (yay!!) and around 4,000 were euthanized. :( This is why it's so important to spay or neuter your cat! Please contact us if you need help ~ we can get you low-cost for your cat or kitten!
