To prevent this sort of suffering in the first place is to spay and neuter. There are countless number of dogs in the streets and if we don’t control their numbers, the suffering will not end and there will always be hungry dogs in the streets.
Why spay and neuter?
- Decreases overpopulation
- Reduces aggression
- Reduces roaming
- Lowers risk of cancer
- Reduces spraying and marking
- Increases lifespan upto 3 to 5 years
I work as an individual, whatever little I can with my own salary and with the help of my brother and my sister-in-law. We three members of the family feed 125 dogs in Salt Lake (Kolkata), we have spayed/neutered a total of 60 dogs last year however we could not continue the same due to monetary issues. Apart from spay/neuter, we have also treated dogs with mange, dewormed/ vaccinated the dogs, treated hit-n-run cases.
This year we are targeting to sterilise 100+ dogs to help manage countless number of puppies which is a huge challenge but I hope you can help me make this a success.
Thanks in advance for helping this cause.
