What To Do With Strays And How You Can Help

 


The truth about controlling the population of strays worldwide is that there is NONE. There is no sure way which we can use to curb population explosions or replenishing of animals other than with mass killings of every single animal on sight and even then, despite all the time, cruelty, pain and bloodshed, there'll still be strays around only that in the end, they'll become wary of human contact and breed out of sight, hiding their offspring from human eyes.

As an animal lover, you can help by talking to your neighbours about taking care of the strays in the neighbourhood AFTER they've been neutered. Get the animals to feel safe in your neighbourhoods so that they won't roam to others because when they stay put in one area, it is easier to catch, bring them to vets for neutering and to monitor them after that. Animals, especially dogs, which have established themselves in one area, usually feel defensive about that place and may help prevent newcomers from settling there. An animal without a home or base will usually be less inclined to reproduce when its main priority is finding food and shelter.

We have received many complaints about us by people who claimed to be animal lovers but their only aim is for us to remove stray animals from their sight. They agree without hesitation to having the animals euthanized with the reason that it's painless but we wonder how many of them will agree to be euthanized when they're jobless and old because a human being who cannot contribute anything positive to society is a much greater burden than a stray dog or cat which is happy eating leftovers and bothering no one.
