This is so sad. Though I have no solution for this devastating problem, I don't think that de-sexing all of them is a good idea, what if that lead to endangerment of their species in the future? Though that doesn't sound probable at allll, I'm just saying we should contemplate all options before we hastily make decisions. There are animals lives at stake, and though many people don't think it's a big idea, to me a life is a life.

To prevent over population of dogs we ought to have sterilization pills or some method to reduce their numbers.Dogs are ill treated because there are too many in every city,town and village.

One of my "niche" TV channels has a show called "Pick A Puppy" - Argg! I've suggested that they instead have "My Rescued Pet", showing animals turned into shelters or rescued by SPCA, animals in the shelters, and adoption of the lucky ones into caring new homes, and how it worked out -- a video of the stories you read on The Animal Rescue Site [are you clicking there?!! Please do!] .

Is anyone out there a filmmaker who'd be interested in doing this? We need to get the adoption word out so there are fewer discarded, unwanted pets.

went to the site - the pill idea would be great if funding would enable a breakthrough. Godspeed
