The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) estimates that between six and eight million cats and dogs enter shelters each year. Of those, only between three and four million are adopted. The population rates for companion animals can quickly spiral:
- Average number of litters a fertile cat can produce in one year: 3
- Average number of kittens in a feline litter: 4-6
- Average number of litters a fertile dog can have in one year: 2
- Average number of puppies in a canine litter: 6-10
