Animal Birth Control
A single pair of dogs, can in their lifetime alone, see between 60,000 – 70,000 in progeny.
It is not possible to control that huge number on the streets. Not only is it illegal to kill a stray dog but it would be inhumane to do so. Add to that woes of abundant garbage as ready food supply, territorial instincts, disease and an indifferent, and at times, plain scared ever exploding human population- what do you get?
Disaster of epic proportions waiting to happen!
How can we change this situation?
Better garbage Disposal and Animal Birth Control.
If that first pair are spayed/ neutered. Then the cycle ends. They live out their life of about 3-5 years on the streets and it’s over.
What can you do?
Call your local Animal Welfare center and follow up on the ABC program in your locality. FYI- an already spayed or neutered dog will have it’s ear notched (a little bit of the tip cut off).
If it’s not effective enough, then do what these little girls did. They spent their own pocket money to spay a community/street dog they named JLo. Read/see their story here.
Or get it done yourself. It won’t cost you more than one fancy dinner!!
