Study on abandonment and adoption of pets (publication 2016)

One more year, DEP Institut has carried out, on behalf of Affinity Foundation, the Study on Abandonment and Adoption of pets.

Thanks to the collaboration of animal shelters and municipalities throughout Spain, it has been confirmed that in 2015 more than 137,000 abandoned dogs and cats were collected. The main reasons for abandonment are animal behavior (14.8%) and unexpected layers (14.5%). For the first time in three years, economic factors are no longer the main reason for abandoning animals.
