Each year, approximately 6.5 million companion animals are sent to animal shelters in the U.S. Approximately 1.5 million of the animals in shelters are euthanized. In an effort to reduce these shocking numbers, City Wide Chem-Dry has partnered with — Best Friends Animal Society (BFAS). This partnership was made to encourage pet adoption and find safe and healthy homes for all shelter pets.
“Our company is dedicated to ensuring you home carpets and upholstery are clean; however, we also have a duty to the community,” stated company representative Chad Lopez. “We are taking an active role and trying to reduce the number of pets being surrendered to shelters and trying to find homes for those that are there. Our partnership with Best Friends Animal Society will hopefully bring about a noticeable reduction in this problem.”
Currently, about 44 percent of all households in the U.S. have a dog and 35 percent have a cat. While the adoption of animals from shelters is the most popular method of obtaining them, the ASPCA has stated this still isn’t enough. Reducing the numbers in shelters around the country is going to take a massive movement that highlights this problem. That’s another goal of the partnership between City Wide Chem-Dry and the BFAS.
Lopez continued, “We are hoping to make an impact and highlight the importance of shelter pet adoption right here in our community. There are hundreds of cats and dogs in shelters in the area that want a loving, safe home. We are dedicated to this cause and helping to reduce the number of animals euthanized in shelters.”
Adopting a pet is good for the animal and the person. Pets have been proven to increase happiness and even extend the lifespan of seniors.
