Photos of Suffering
Attention: These photos are graphic, but please don't turn away.
In the U.S., thousands of dogs and cats are still killed every DAY in shelters. And millions of uncaught strays live harsh, short lives outdoors.
This is terrible enough, but in many countries, strays suffer even more. Since our mission is a global one, we feel compelled to show what's happening outside the U.S.
We must not refuse to see with our eyes what they must endure with their bodies.

In over 60 countries, there are few to no laws against cruelty to animals, and strays are killed by extremely inhumane methods, including…
-- beating to death -- poisoning -- shooting -- electrocution -- hanging -- lacing food with crushed glass -- crushing dogs to death in garbage trucks.
Why are these methods used? Because they're very low-cost.

Our goal is to end the global pet overpopulation crisis and end these acts of cruelty. How? By developing the Spay and Neuter Cookie, which, when completed, will be capable of spaying and neutering - without surgery.
Your donation not only goes to help end pet overpopulation and prevent the suffering of strays, it also allows us to rescue more pups like Autumn.
Autumn, one of our pilot pups was rescued at 12 weeks old after being abandoned and left to fend for herself. She was found suffering from a severe case of intestinal parasites and was as shy as could be.
Everyone, including her rescuers, fell in love with her at first sight, making her adoption process quick and easy. To this day, Autumn is still a very quiet and calm little lady. More than anything, though, she is super affectionate and loves nothing more than curling up in her favorite humans' laps for hours at a time.
Strays also suffer every day from starvation, untreated injuries and illnesses, and random acts of cruelty.
Even spayed females are shot and killed.

Your donation not only goes to help end pet overpopulation and prevent the suffering of strays, it also allows us to rescue more pups like Frenchie.
When our Pilot Pup Frenchie was first found, there were doubts that she would make it. She was skin and bones, and rescuers noticed that her legs looked to be deformed.
After several weeks of some tender love and care and plenty of nourishment, Frenchie was able to make a full recovery. We even realized through her recovery process that she loves to eat cantaloupe and bananas!
Today, Frenchie is a gentle, sweet, and happy little Bulldog who is grateful to those who saved her.

Mass killings of tens of thousands of dogs have been carried out in countries like China and Brazil, to remove strays from sight prior to high-profile public events such as the Olympics.
In Mexico City alone, with its 1.2 to 3 million stray dogs, thousands of dogs are killed every month.
Your donation not only goes to help end pet overpopulation and prevent the suffering of strays, it also allows us to rescue more pups like Marley.
Marley, also known as the gentle giant, loves lounging in the green grass, basking in the sun, and giving sloppy kisses to everyone!
All of our Pilot Pups are adopted out into loving homes after participating in the program. We also cover all associated costs such as veterinary care, food, housing, transportation, adoption -- and we add a hefty dose of love and affection.
