As if nursing 10 puppies wasn't enough...

This is Conchita. We found her in between bushes and on a pile of garbage, nursing her 4 pups -- all rescued by 600MillionDogs

Kela gave birth to 10 puppies while at the animal shelter in Jackson County, MI.

A few days later, an abandoned kitten, who was still nursing, was brought to the same shelter. 

While actively nursing her own 10 puppies, Kela heard the kitten meowing from the next room. She got up from nursing her puppies and desperately pawed at the door until she was let into the next room with the kitten.

She immediately bonded with the male kitten, and refused to leave the kitten’s side. The shelter decided to add the kitten to Kela’s litter of 10 puppies.

As soon as the kitten was added to the "puppy pile," Kela started cleaning and nursing the kitten, and the kitten instantly joined the pack!

Kela "adopted" the kitten and treated him as her own, providing him with love and care. [1]   

While this is great news for the kitten, this heartwarming story points to a bigger problem: across the world, many other dogs and cats are suffering because they are born homeless: innocent victims of the overpopulation problem.

1. Adopt, don’t shop! Adopt and save an animal in need, instead of supporting breeding, which adds to the overpopulation problem.


2. Always spay or neuter your companion animals. 

3. Offer to foster. Fostering animals helps reduce the overcrowding in shelters.

Worldwide an estimated 600 million stray dogs and 480 million cats roam the streets on any given day.

Each year they give birth to over one billion homeless pups and kittens, and most are born into a life of hunger and suffering.

At the age of 6 months, those who are still alive also begin to reproduce -- creating a Cycle of Suffering that is repeated every year.

This Cycle of Suffering has become the Number One cause of suffering and death for dogs and cats worldwide.

Approximately 50 countries have essentially no laws against cruelty to animals. Strays are killed by inhumane methods including poisoning, beating them to death, shooting, crushing them to death in the back of garbage trucks, electrocution, mixing food with broken glass (which causes them to bleed to death) and worse.


Here in the United States, tax dollars have been spent to kill stray dogs for the last 100-plus years.

We believe this situation is outrageous and has gone on for far too long -- this is why we are focused on the root of the problem.

Our nonprofit science-based mission is: 

To end the #1 cause of suffering and death for dogs and cats -- overpopulation -- by developing a safe, permanent-lasting, one-time birth control cookie for stray dogs and cats. 


A cookie that will only need to be eaten one time, and it will in effect spay or neuter -- without surgery.

A one-time cookie that will artificially induce a type of human menopause -- but in dogs and cats, without using hormones.

We are a small grassroots nonprofit charity, carrying out work that pharmaceutical companies should be doing -- but they refuse. 

We receive no help from any of the drug companies, no grants from the government, no help from any dog food companies or other large companies. 

Instead we rely 100% on small donations. Small gifts from people who care, like you.  

We are dedicated to ending this global problem -- and a gift of any amount will help -- no gift is too small.

If you're like me and you don't have much to spare right now, there is an easy way to help for $1 a month. 

Yes, the good news is that each of us can pitch in and help animals now for only $1 a month!

Together we will save entire future generations of animals, from cruelty and suffering.

Thank you in advance for helping and for caring!
