According to an article on The Huffington Post, fewer dogs and cats are being euthanized in the US. Increases in cat and dog adoptions, as well as successful spay and neuter programs across the country, has resulted in fewer than four million dogs and cats being euthanized this year out of roughly 170 million companion animals, happy news when faced with a staggering number of 20 million animals euthanized before 1970. The next step, the article states, is less invasive forms of sterilization such as pills, implants, and vaccines for cats and dogs.
