Fine the residents are are setting these dogs homeless. the people are breeding and not spaying the females. SPAY THE FEMALES. WOULD'T HURT FOR THE CITY TO HAVE A PROGRAM SO PEOPLE CAN AFFORD TO FIX THEIR PETS AND SPAY THE STRAY FEMALES.

I feel so bad for these poor dogs who are being left in this city. Stop Dog Fighting, Stop Breading to Fight. Stop Breading to make money. It's these poor Dogs who are suffering from all This Shit People are doing and forcing them to live this Kind of life :(

Julia your point about spaying female dogs is so true~~good for you. However, BOTH male & female dogs (and cats) need to be neutered, not just females. Intact (unneutered) males (especially when kept on a chain) can be more territorial, more aggressive, more likely to fight with other dogs or attack people. Doesn't look like Detroit has a extra penny to enact a low-cost neuter program. Wouldn't it be great if vets would just do these procedures for free knowing how extremely important this is~~~~

This petition is about getting this story out to the public. Discovery Channel had worked on a documentary about the stray animals & Detroit city officials stopped the filming. There are great rescue groups out there but how can they begin to keep up with 50,000 stray dogs. This number is only increasing everyday. Not any easy solutions but they need to start somewhere... educating the public & getting help to the dogs that are socialized enough to be rescued is a beginning.

This problem is everyones problem that is for us bt6o help we must be on the lookout for dogs that people put out in those streets this is not where any animal belongs it starts at home ,Detroit is only one place that abuses their power over animals they need to stop try to build a no-kill shelter for these dogs so nobody goes without food and a warm place to lay.

Naturally this is a serious issue but with Detroit declaring bankruptcy those poor dogs don't stand much of a chance.

Asistencia humanitaria, trabajo en equipo con organizaciones protectoras de animales y alcaldías, asignación de recursos materiales y humanos para atender la situación con respeto por la vida de los perros y trato dentro del marco de los Derechos de los Animales, planes sanitarios para evitar que de esta situación no provoque daños a la salud pública además.

Todo ello debe ser encarado con responsabilidad y acompañado por proyectos educativos para que la población tome conciencia de su rol como cuidadores de los animalitos domésticos. En todas las ciudades evolucionadas del mundo se están llevando a cabo experiencias y proyectos para subsanar este problema del abandono y el maltrato hacia las mascotas, especialmente. Hay mucho por hacer, pero hay que COMENZAR...

Well maybe now people will wake up & have some compassion for these animals they abandon & leave behind!!!! Clearly this city needs re-educated on how to look after a pet! Yes, they will probably all be killed now, because the law isn't strict enough on animal rights! In the UK if you left your animal abandoned in a house, u would be in serious s**t... Either banned from keeping pets & a fine or prison!

It's the animal owners responsibility to care and take care of their pets. In a civilized country/state abandoning animals should, of course, be outlawed. How any society allows and accept that people throw their animals out on the streets, which makes it a problem for the whole community, is beyond me. That is animal abuse, nothing else and should be considered a felony. Spay/neuter your dogs and find them homes instead of killing or abandoning them!
