TRAGEDY

Click on photos to enlarge Below are a multitude of puppy photos. I didn't take them to be creative and I wasn't interested in great photography. I just want people to see what is occurring every minute of the day (somewhere) with dogs. Yes, they are cute and innocent. The mother is attentive and ever on the watch. These puppies were acquired by the person I have partnered with to help homeless dogs. As cute, innocent and sweet as they are; they are the result of uncaring or uneducated human owners who claim to be pet lovers. Every dog that is not neutered or is not spayed has the potential to create puppies and add to the current proliferation of unwanted pets that exist currently in society. The majority of these cute little babies are killed every hour round the clock in "shelters." There is no alternative. Breeders create more and more adding to the count of dogs. If you are a pet "lover", then be a responsible one. Spay or neuter your dog. It does them no harm and does not affect them in any negative way. It is the right thing to do. It is the responsible thing to do. If you want a puppy or an adult; adopt one from a shelter. There are all breeds available. Mixed breeds are wonderful and in many cases thwart off deceases better than pure breeds. The puppies in the pictures below are the lucky ones. They have found safe harbor. They will be vetted, vaccinated, neutered and spayed, heart worm tested, receive their rabies shots when old enough and placed in homes with responsible families who will appreciate each and every one of them. The person we got them from said "make sure they get good homes." Why didn't he make sure they were never conceived? There are thousands of other puppies who will feel the pinch of the needle as the deadly poison is injected into them. Their end will be in the land fill. A noble animal deserves a noble end. Not a land fill. The stream of unwanted puppies is endless. Only spay/neutering is the answer. Enjoy the photos. Be a responsible pet owner. Spay and neuter. Visit your pet shelter and select a great dog as your family partner. Save one or two from a not very positive prognosis. Thanks......
