Only one out of every 10 dogs will find a forever home. Homeless animals also outnumber homeless people by five to one. These shocking statistics are part of what encouraged the staff at — Five Star Chem-Dry to partner with Best Friends Animal Society. The goal of the partnership is to raise funds for the animal foundation and to continue encouraging community members to adopt pets from the local shelters.
“We were more than impressed with the efforts and accomplishments made by the staff and volunteers at Best Friends Animal Society,” stated Chem-Dry representative Mike Kirkman. “Our staff is proud to partner with this great cause and help raise awareness and funds for homeless animals in the community. The situation is only getting worse and we want to help turn things around.”
Best Friends Animal Society has actively run the biggest no-kill sanctuary for all companion animals in the U.S. for more than three decades. In addition to helping stray and surrendered animals find new forever homes, the society also works to reduce the number of animals going into shelters. With approximately 7.6 million companion animals entering shelters around the nation annually, this is a trend that needs to stop.
Kirkman continued, “At Five Star Chem-Dry we are dedicated to the betterment of our community. While our business is cleaning and sanitizing carpets and upholstery in local homes and businesses, we are also passionate about helping animals in need find safe and loving homes. Now that we have partnered with BFAS, we feel as though we can make a significant difference in this important cause.”
Every year, an estimated 2.7 million dogs and cats are killed because shelters are overcrowded and there aren’t enough adoptive homes. Another issue is that only about 10 percent of animals entering the shelters have been neutered or spayed. This only adds to the overpopulation problem of cats and dogs, and the higher number of animals being sent to shelters. The latest effort by fivestarchem-dry.com shows the company’s dedication to the community.
