News: Please SPAY and NEUTER your pets. WHY?

The reality in America is that if each of us were to take the number of dogs home that we would need to adopt to solve the problem of overpopulation - we would EACH have to adopt SEVEN (7) dogs...that would mean a family of 5 would own 35 dogs! Caring for Canines does not use Euthanasia on a routine basis to make room for other homeless dogs.

We thought the following poem might help someone to begin to think about and consider how to bring an end to the huge problem of animal overpopulation; to cause someone else to think about the importance of spaying and neutering their personal pet/s; and, also, be a reminder for ALL OF US to pass on the message of spaying and neutering our pets to solve the problem of unwanted litters of dogs.

No more lonely cold nights or hearing that I'm bad
No more growling belly from the meals I never had.
No more scorching sunshine with a water bowl that's dry.
No more complaining neighbors about the noise when I cry.
No more hearing "shut up", "get down" or "get out of here"!
No more feeling disliked, only peace is in the air.
Euthanasia is a blessing, though some still can't see
why I was ever born If I weren't meant to be.
My last day of living was the best I ever had.
Someone held me very close, I could see she was very sad.
I kissed the lady's face, and she hugged me as she cried.
I wagged my tail to thank her, then I closed my eyes and died.

Who We Are

Caring for Canines can no longer accept homeless pups/dogs, but offers the courtesy of posting the animal you have rescued on the Caring for Canines Petfinder webpage. We ask that you spay/neutered prior to adoption, in order to solve the core problem: overpopulation (so many wonderful dogs, but not enough homes), one pup at a time.
For more information about crate training, please see: in the library section under the topic: crate training. There are many helpful articles available for pet guardians at this site.
Please remember dogs are highly sociable, pack-oriented, family members. They need to be a part of every day family life. A commitment to adopting a dog means loving, living with and caring for a dog for his or her entire life (most dogs live between 12-16 years).
