Spaying and neutering is the first step…

As a nation, we claim to love cats and dogs. Millions of households have pets, and billions of dollars are spent yearly on pet supplies and food. But as a nation, we should take a hard, sobering look at a different annual statistic: the millions of dogs and cats given up to shelters or left to die on the streets. And the numbers tell only half the story.

Every cat or dog who dies as a result of pet overpopulation—whether humanely in a shelter or by injury, disease, or neglect—is an animal who, more often than not, would have made a wonderful companion, if given the chance. Tremendous as the problem of pet overpopulation is, it can be solved if each of us takes just one small step, starting with not allowing our animals to breed. Here’s information about this crisis and why spaying and neutering is the first step to a solution. -HSUS

VS note: If you are an animal lover, this video will be difficult to watch. If you are not an animal lover, please take time to watch it, and become one.

  1. I am an animal lover & it infuriates me as to the neglect I see people do to animals. People are so cruel and these innocent, precious babies should not be subjected to cruelty & neglect. Everyone should most definitely spay or neuter their pet. There’s so many irresponsible people out there!!

  2. Jerry if you only really knew and saw it with your own eyes would you get a grasp of how bad it really is..

  3. What can be done? Why are the people that are the ones that neglect & abuse these animals sent to prison just like any other crime? If the law would do something besides slapping peoples’ hands when they do something, maybe they’d stop doing things. I get so disgusted when I read the crime report when I read all these “so & so years….sentence suspended.” AND PEOPLE WONDER WHY WE HAVE SUCH A HIGH AMOUNT OF CRIME, DRUGS, VIOLENCE & MURDERS? I think we need some new judges in Warren County!!

  4. Excuse me, I meant to say, Why aren’t the people that abuse & neglect the animals sent to prison????

  5. Wish Rambo good luck, he’s getting neutered.

  6. Good luck, Rambo!
