I never got any help from Paws toward spaying/neutering my animals,much less feeding them.The Bob Barker fund helped with spaying a dog for me once,and when I've needed help with spaying.neutering,another local group has helped me.I was told by somebody,that I didn't take care of my animals,BECAUSE I DIDN'T SPAY,OR NEUTER THEM???Every animal I've gotten in my younger(?) past,was always spayed,neutered,which ever be the case!After I had some rescued cats spayed,neutered,most disappeared!!They may help others.as I don't know much about them.

People stress being kind to,rescuing animals,which is good,but the main thing that can help with the unwanted animals being abandoned,dumped in shelters,is to SPAY,NEUTER them yourselves!In about a 9 year span,I have had cats and 2 dogs spayed,neutered,that probably saved hundreds of unwanted cats and dogs from being starved to death,abandoned along roads,railroads,and euthanized in animal shelters! Doing your part directly is one thing,and trying to do the impossible,by giving homes to hundreds of unwanted animals is another thing!I sure hope there are more groups that will help people to spay,neuter their animals,averting the problem before it happens.

It makes me sick because i have this neighbor that just doesn't care how many times his dogs reproduce. he just takes them to the pound at around 4 weeks and waits for the next batch. he has like 5 female dogs and one horny boy and i believe they are all stemming from the original male and female so it's all inbreeding. I took one of his pups one time and have had all kinds of health problems out of her. Skin conditions, fleas, worms and anything else you can think of. Heck the vet couldn't give her her shots at first till her immune system strengthened back up. The bottom line is he has no business having one animal let alone 5 or 6 breeding all the time. What can i do about this, short of spaying them myself??? grrrr it just makes me nuts.. He's not the kind of neighbor you can just approach about anything let alone something like this.

Your neighbor must love his dogs so much,he wants to keep the bloodline going?! They should try and give their puppies away,not take them to the shelter,knowing it's a 80% chance they will be euthanized!My God,I wish people wouldn't abandon animals,along the highways,busy streets and railroads!There is help in spaying,neutering with different orgs.A vet could help by giving you the names of all the organizations that will help.
