Top 10 Reasons to spay / neuter your dog


Every Sunday I receive the "kill list" The list is from just a few pounds in Ohio... 3 maybe 4 county pounds out of 88! The list usually has about 80 plus dogs on it. The list is called a "kill list" because the dogs not taken will be killed on Friday morning. This list is where I first saw my dog Petey. Who at this moment is basically laying on my lap.

Petey is a great dog. Not 100% sure how old he is.. maybe 4 years old the vet guessed. I got him last year on my birthday. He was already housebroken, crate trained, knew basic commands. Petey is a GREAT dog. Of course was not neutered, he is now :-)

The profile picture on my blog is Petey's "kill" picture from the pound.

Here are some of the dogs on this weeks "kill list" So, don't tell me that only mutts or "bad" dogs find their way into shelters or that their really isn't an overpopulation problem or that YOUR breed of dog isn't found at a shelter. Here are the pictures and some information about them......

Beagle Picture1322 This gal is so calm and so sweet.She just lays in her kennel waiting for the right person to see her and take her home. She is about 2 years old. Real nice girl

This is just a FEW of the dogs on the list... didn't want to bore you with ALL of them...

So, the next time you hear someone say they want to breed tell them about these faces who when you wake up on Saturday morning to spend time with your family.... will more then likely no longer exist. OR you think to yourself "ONE litter won't hurt anyone" please go to your local pound / local kill shelter and give each dog a cookie, look them in the face and tell them ONE litter won't hurt anyone EXCEPT THEM as they are lead to the gas chamber and killed.


And above are actually 29 reasons!
