ANIMAL SUPPORT

Animal Support was founded by Julian Omidi and his brother Michael Omidi, M.D. who are all life-long animal welfare advocates. Motivated by the multitude of issues associated with pet over-population and mistreatment, the founders created this organization to educate the public on the issue, support animal protection and adoption services, and promote spay and neuter laws.

By some estimates, as many as 99% of all dogs sold in pet stores come from puppy mills. A recent study by the University of Pennsylvania also reports that dogs born in puppy mills often suffer long-term emotional and psychological effects. No matter how caring or loving the homes where many of these animals end up, some are so severely traumatized that they never fully recover from the conditions they began their lives in.

Animal Abuse Statistics

It is estimated that, in the United States, there are approximately 2,000 cases of animal cruelty, neglect and abandonment every year.  While these numbers reflect a portion of incidents of abuse by private pet owners, these statistics do not necessarily include the questionable treatment of animals by under-regulated enterprises such as pet stores, zoos, circuses and farms.

  • 13% of animal abuse is domestic violence
  • Around 3 to 4 million dogs and cats are are euthanized every year in animal shelters.
  • 70% of animal abusers have records of other crimes unrelated to animal abuse.
