The phenomenon of overpopulation in companion animals refers to the large, growing number of of homeless domestic cats and dogs. In the United States alone, between 3 and 4 million cats and dogs are euthanized each year for lack of homes to adopt them, according to the Humane Society of the United States. As a result, most humane societies, animal shelters and rescue groups urge pet owners to spay or neuter their pets to prevent the births of unwanted and accidental litters.

Pet overpopulation can be an ecological concern as well as a concern over animal welfare, with overpopulation occurring when there are more domestic cats and dogs than there are people wanting them as pets, independent of ecological carrying capacity. It is also a financial problem: Capturing, impounding and eventual euthanasia costs taxpayers and private agencies millions of dollars each year, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.
