Everyone loves dogs, cats, and other furry (or feathered) friends and yet, pet homelessness is still a huge problem in the United States. Every year an estimated 2.7 million animals are euthanized in shelters. That means that every 11 seconds . . . an animal is killed.

Sadly, the U.S. isn’t the only country with a pet homelessness issue. After the nation’s financial collapse, pet homelessness skyrocketed in Greece. While some locals are doing their best to help these animals, the economic conditions make this extremely difficult.
