Actually skipmorris17, having them neutered or spayed is not cruel and there is no such rule as allowing them to have at least 1 litter before getting them "fixed", ask a Vet, it's codswollap. What is cruel is seeing the damage and abuse done to these Dogs and Cats by Humans who hurl boiling water at them, set fire to them, beat them till their skulls are smashed with sticks, kick them to death, poison them after enticing them over to food...................the list goes on, shall I? It's...

It's stupid ignorance like your spouting that causes the damage to these Animals. You clearly see yourself as an animal lover so go see a Vet and ask them about your view on neutering and spaying, then go visit the hundreds of KILL SHELTERS around the World and see what allowing irresponsible breeding produces. As for not giving your animals away to just anybody, you only see the attitude of the person as they want you to see it, you can't be sure what their like behind closed doors. Bare that in mind when you hand over a defenceless puppy next time.

I strongly agree with you. Actully it not as healthy for a dog to have puppies and a male dog if you don't breed him and not spay him he will have trouble later.

She doesn't even have to go around the world. She can see it in her own county or town. So many animals and so few homes for them so they die.

There is one solution: neutering all street dogs and cats. This is what happens in a village in France, street animals do not multiply, even diminishes. They do the same in the US, in Thailand, etc. But Cruelty is nOT the solution.

That's good that you don't just give them to anybody unless you think you can trust them. But how much research goes into the thinking you can trust them?? Unless you know these people personally that you're trusting and stay in contact with them, you don't know how these dogs are treated or that they're not letting them have more puppies. And you can't very well ask them to get these puppies spayed/ neutered when you don't do it yourself, can't you?? Which adds even more unwanted animals...

Also if you didn't have these puppies to give away, and these people really wanted a dog, they would go to the Humane Society and adopt one which in turn would prevent another animal from being euthanized. Think about what your doing. REALLY THINK ABOUT IT, THEN TAKE YOUR DOGS AND GET THEM FIXED.

skipmorris, your argument makes no sense. 100's of 1000's of puppies die every year, a horrible death, due to massive overpopulation of dogs WORLDWIDE. They either die of starvation and disease, or they are put to sleep in shelters. That's far more cruel than sterilizing. Don't forget who created the situation in the first place.. people created it. We made domestic dogs for our own ends. Now we ignore the mess we created, which by the way, gets worse every year. PLUS, like Janet says,...

PLUS, like Janet says, every puppy somebody like you breeds, means another will die unwanted somewhere. This will never end until people STOP allowing dogs to breed. We do not need another single dog on this planet!!!!

skipmorris17 Sure, it may be in the animals nature to reproduce, but that doesn't mean we have to allow it. There are too many cats and dogs in this world as it is, why bring more in it and keeping the cycle going?? There are animals that need our help, and instead of helping them, we're more worried about having more and more UNWANTED litters. NO!!

skipmorris17 do you really CARE what happens to your puppies after you GIVE them away? There is no possible way you or anyone can know what is happening to these pups 24/7! Right here in the U.S. 'humans' are getting "FREE TO GOOD HOME" dogs and cats and using them for target practice... you may say that is HORRIBLE, HEINOUS, etc., etc., etc., but that doesn't help to stop ABUSE of ANIMALS! It is pure CAHCAH that "it is in their nature for dogs to have puppies and cats to have...

Whoever taught you that needs to spend a year in a Kill Shelter to see the 1000's of dogs & cats that are killed daily because of overpopulation!!!

perhaps we need less people on the planet? come to think abt it, what right do we have to preach dogs about their breeding habits when as supposedly rational beings we dont leash our own breeding habits?

The shelters in any area I have lived, and I have lived in Florida, WV, Virginia and now Kentucky all REQUIRE the person adopting the dog or cat, to have them neutered. I know many think it is cruel, but I do not believe that animal truly knows they are missing having pup or kittens - its not like a person, who wants a baby. animals breed because they can, and nature made them this way in order to keep their species alive. I LOVE animals, all dogs and cats - but I also know over population,...

Skipmorris17, you are right it's in a animal nature to have dogs or cats but it's time for something to be done with animal abuse so this is the best thing to do at this point neutering your pet and if I get mine done also it's the best thing to be done if your pet dies of old age and you would like to have another you go and adopt one only people who love animals will adopt now we know it's not going to be abuse by use another hundred and it will all add up less *ABUSE*What we need is...

It well be love, cared and help them to heal so they can be adopted by a family that will take care and love them the way it should be they should have them visit the shelter once a month to exam them to make sure that they are well treated. I hope this comment will do some good thanks for taking the time to read.

If you well breeding with your pet, make sure that the people buy the babies will defenitly take good care of them and not just one of the persons wanted to keep a spoiled child happy.

How are you gonna be sure of that? People say anything and then do the opposite. Do you think that people who come and buy puppies and kittens to sell to labs are going to actually tell you that is their plan?
