I would sign this petition, BUT, it would mean a "catch and kill" policy would be bought in, which would be totally against my principles

meanwhile the dogs and cats suffer b/c now no one cares for them/ how f'n dare these communities raise dogs for fighting and protection and then cast them aside when life doesn't go their way omg, these people will suffer terribly from leaving pets homeless to suffer and die / also we must fine people heavily who refuse to neuter or spay/

yes it's humans who are culpable here and certainly NOT jewish folks who have always take animal welfare very seriously/ and YES to the amish who don't seem to give a damn about animal suffering

this is a very, very bad situation! what needs to be remembered is, IT IS NOT THE DOGS FAULT. i,m not totally blaimimg the owners, but they are responsible for thier pets. Detroit can set the example here. lets do this the right way. there are many folks who are willing, i,m sure, in this city that care about the pups. ask for thier help and i bet they will.

Detroit is a nasty city, i dread when i have to go there, How can anything be done when you have the mayor and his sidekicks stealing all the money, no one in Detroit cares and that is why the poor animals will suffer.

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~~~~

..people should be cognizant of the consequences of taking on animal care when not inclined, equipped or passionate. Having a pet takes alot and requires discipline, love, dedication!! Don't like a canine convention? Then step, any form of brutality is UNACCEPTABLE

There are a few groups who are trying to change things, at least for the dogs of the D. One of those groups is DDR, Detroit Dog Rescue. Check out their website for updates on what they are doing. Their hope is to build Detroit's first no-kill shelter. Animals should NEVER have to pay for our sins. No animal deserves to ever be abused, neglected, abandoned, tortured or murdered.
