For the primary time in 5 years, the variety of pets euthanized in U.S. animal shelters has risen, from 347,000 to 355,000.

According to Julie Castle, CEO of Best Friends Animal Society, this improve is basically because of the historic low numbers of pets getting into shelters in 2020 through the starting of the COVID-19 pandemic.

When shelters started reopening, extra pets entered shelters, and adoption has not been in a position to outpace the consumption of pets. Cats, who’re euthanized at twice the speed of canines, stay essentially the most at-risk pets in animal shelters.
