Statistics show large need for pet rescue in F-M area

Figures from the animal pounds in Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo show that 132 cats and 22 dogs were euthanized at the local pounds in 2013.  Of the 132 cat euthanizations, all were considered feral or injured/ill and needed to be humanely euthanized.

Please continue to help local pet rescue organizations by adopting homeless pets. The great majority of our pets come from the pound, so adopting opens up our resources and allows us to rescue more from a needless death. Lets keep up the great work that all area rescue groups are doing and keep the euthanization numbers down!  Thank You for your support!

With the help of its volunteers and supporters, Adopt-A-Pet has been able to rescue many animals every year, but we would love to rescue many more. We especially need more foster homes for cats and dogs in order to save more adoptable pets from being killed. Please keep reading to learn about ways you can help save more adoptable pets.
