Check out these organizations when considering taking in a pet

Each year, more than 7 million companion animals end up in shelters and nearly 3 million of them are euthanized. That’s one of the heartbreaking stats from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Indeed, pet overpopulation continues to be a huge problem in the United States. Citizens can help prevent the proliferation of unwanted pets by spaying and neutering them. Additionally, those looking for companion animals should consider adoption. Shelters are full of wonderful cats as well as awesome pure-bred and mixed-breed dogs, such as Shane (pictured at Butte Humane Society). Local facilities in the area include:

Butte Humane Society:

Chico Animal Shelter:

Chico Cat Coalition:

Wags and Whiskers Pet Rescue:
