Help save a life.

DUDLEYS ANIMAL SHELTER

 

We help homeless and abandoned animals find permanent, loving homes.

 

Most of the dogs we take in are malnourished, ill, injured or been abused, so you can imagine that our veterinarian expenses are quite high. We believe that if an animal has the courage to survive the abuse and neglect it deserves to be medically treated and live its remaining years in a loving home.

The need is constant and expenses creep up every year. Please consider one of the many ways of donating to support our efforts to help the animals. A tax donation letter will sent in response to all gifts.
(This letter will be sent to the address on your check.)

MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to stop the flow of unwanted animals into shelters that euthanize pets. We accomplish this by providing our lost/found service and by collaborating on a pet lost/found line. We assist lost/found dogs in finding their way home.

We ask for a minimum non refundable donation to adopt one of our dogs. 

         Every year in the United States an estimated 5 million animals lose their lives in shelters because they are homeless.

         That is one pet life lost every 6.5 seconds.

         It costs U.S. taxpayers an estimated 2 billion each year to round up, house, kill and dispose of homeless animals.

         The pet overpopulation epidemic is so staggering that for every animal born in the United States to have a home, each and every human being would have to own 6 dogs and 9 cats.

         So, in actuality, a family of four (2 parents and 2 small children) would have to own 24 dogs and 36 cats.

         For every child born, so are 15 dogs and 45 cats.....

         Number of cats and dogs entering shelters each year: 6-8 million (HSUS estimate)

         Number of cats and dogs euthanized by shelters each year: 3-4 million (HSUS estimate)

         Number of animal shelters in the United States: Between 4,000 and 6,000 (HSUS estimate)

         Percentage of dogs in shelters who are purebred: 25% (HSUS estimate)

         Average number of puppies in a canine litter: 6-10 In six years, one female dog and her offspring can theoretically produce 67,000 dogs.
