$142 feeds all the animals at the SPCA of Westchester for a day. Animal shelters help provide food and care to homeless animals in need, but animal overpopulation has become a major issue. Over 4 million pets are homeless in America and do not have adequate food or shelter. Shelters take in homeless pets and care for them until they can be adopted or reunited with their family. Without your help, shelters can not continue to care for and support the great number of animals received and many healthy animals have to be euthanized.
