9.6 Million

That is the number of animals euthanized each year according to the American Humane Society. Spay and Neuter your animals and encourage everyone you know to do so as well. Old news you say? We think not.
9.6 Million means that quite a few of us are not getting the message. And wait, there's more. Feral animals kill mammals and songbirds and have been known to infect wild populations - and they are often the offspring of family pets. For instance, it is believed that the feline distemper afflicting the endangered Florida panther was transmitted by house cats. Controlling the population reduces these problems and saves countless animals from suffering, both wild and domestic.
And while we are on the subject why not get your next family member from your local shelter. Discount coupons are often available to help offsett the cost of spaying and nuetering services. Ask at the shelter.
