Number of Animal Shelters

How many animal shelters are there in the US?

Around 3,500.

The Humane Society of the United States estimates a total number of 3,500 animal shelters all over the United States in November 2009. In 1997 there were only 1,008 shelters that reported to the U.S. National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy. This translates to an increase of over twofold of the number of animal shelters in the country in the past 13 years.
