Please get your dog/cat fixed this is why
It's a lonely world for a dog or cat that is next to be euthanized at these animal shelters because of the high cost. And a deep sadness knowing one cared about getting these animals parents neutered and spayed.
I just read that New Jersey Statewide, nearly 17,000 dogs and cats were euthanized at animal shelters in 2015, while more than 48,000 were redeemed by owners or adopted, the survey said.

After years of political infighting, the state's two largest animal shelters -- First State Animal Center and SPCA and Delaware SPCA -- are no longer housing stray animals picked up by animal control.
Instead, both nonprofit organizations have kept dozens of cages empty as they focus on revenue-generating operations, such as building dog day care facilities.
Unless the situation changes, the state could see more animals euthanized, warned Adam Lamb, executive director for the Brandywine Valley SPCA. The West Chester, Pennsylvania-based organization, formerly the Chester County SPCA, handles sheltering and caring for Delaware's stray and abused animals under a $6.5 million three-year contract approved by the state last year.
