Everyone needs to spay & neuter NOW & if everyone got at least two animal's[they need company while we are gone] then eventually the problem would balance out! Cut back on luxurys that you don't really need & apply that money to at least two pets! I understand that everyone can't own a Dog or Cat, but I also know if tens of thousands of people would put their Booze & Cigarette money aside, they could have two pets in the house/yard etc. & still have money left over! Not jmo it's a fact!...

Not jmo it's a fact! Think about it! You get your health back & provide two pets a home! I'm against buying pets at a store or from a outsider in the paper etc. Go to the Animal Shelter and get at least two off of death row! They start out with all their shots, in good health, and there is NOTHING like the Love they give in return! Some people don't care for mixed breeds , but Ol' Yeller was a mix & look what he did! jk but you get my meaning and mixed make the best pets more time's than not!

I agree entirely John Wayne! Everything you say makes perfect sense (even though I smoke and drink, but that doesn't cost me a great deal - I've just stopped going away on holiday!)

John I agree 1000%. Sad to say but selfishness is endemic to the breed. Humans that is. Most people don't even realize that most behavior problems can be trained out of an animal. This includes feralness. I personally have trained at least a dozen feral cats to become housecats, several of which are sitting or sleeping peacefully in the other room as I type this. At worst they are docile and at best they are some of the most loving animals you will ever see. I have also trained at least 50...

At worst they are docile and at best they are some of the most loving animals you will ever see. I have also trained at least 50 other feral cats to at least allow themselves to be held for short periods, in order to be seen by a vet. These cats were spayed or neutered and later returned to their feral colonies.

When trying to help an animal, most people will go for the one who's friendliest, I find it's a much better idea to find the one who needs your help the most. The one who wags it's tail the hardest will have a ton of people trying to adopt it. But there are so many shelter animals with birth defects, injuries, fear-issues, or other medical issues, that will die if someone doesn't choose them.

It's not only "homing" an animal that helps though (I don't believe in the idea of "owning" a living thing). If you can't keep an animal, then go out and find someone who's rescuing animals and help them. Or emulate them. Find an animal on the street that's obviously in need of help, and take it to the vet for a health check and to be spayed/neutered. Even if you have to return it to the neighborhood at some point (in the case of some cats), or give it to a NO-KILL shelter (for dogs and some cats) animals that are on the street or shelters but are cared for by someone live much longer lives on average.

Make sure you talk to your local animal control and other rescue groups before starting your rescue efforts, and it couldn't help to look around on the 'net and do some research too. You might be surprised what you'll find.

Most people who try rescuing animals find that it's incredibly rewarding, much more than they even thought. There is no greater joy than looking at an animal and knowing that if not for your care, they would have died. They may not be able to speak their gratitude in English, but they'll let you know in other ways how much it means to them.

My hero! We rescued a purebred Doberman. 1. Shots @ Vet 2. Neutered 3. Tutored.
People are amazed we'd neuter rather than breed him. We need more dogs to be tortured, abandoned, struck by vehicles (injured & killed) susceptible to rabies (case in Monroe, NJ-raccoon I think that attacked dog.) People have just got to get real, get responsible, get compassionate!)

There needs to be laws in spaying & neutering pets to keep populations down so there is no need to kill them.

This method of "euthanasia" reminds me of other gas chambers where other innocents, frightened & controlled by those more physically powerful, gasped for life. What is humane about this?

Cette façon de tuer est aussi cruelle que les autres puisqu'elle tue des êtres innocents qui nous donnent leur amour. Félicitations à tous ceux qui protègent nos petits amis.

Quelle horreur, effectivement cela rappelle des souvenirs d'une époque insoutenable, tout se banalise, le 21ème siècle s'inscrit dans le droit fil du 20ème, champion du non-respect des droits des êtres vivants.

Why to be so cruel to poor animals and I agree that if you don't like dogs or cats pls do not just give it to your childrens on birthday or at Chirstmas as present and after for any reasons you just put them to garbage it s not fair so pls stop that.
