Dogs in Guam to be hunted as means of population control ~ 600 Million Dogs ~ Alex Pacheco

Updated: Feb 16, 2020

Public officials on the island of Guam in the Pacific want to allow local hunters to shoot to death, stray dogs ... the same way they allow the hunting of wild pigs during an annual derby.

Making matters worse, helpless homeless dogs on the street are in danger of dying from diseases, or even from human cruelty.

At a recent meeting, government officials discussed allowing hunters to shoot homeless dogs, as a means of population control -- because the number of stray dogs continues to increase.

Shooting and killing defenseless dogs as a sport must not be allowed.

Please contact Guam's Governor Calvo directly by phone at 671-472-8931 or 671-472-8936, and/or by using this online form:

Please let the governor know he must not allow the hunting of homeless dogs to proceed, and that killing dogs as sport is not acceptable.

Apart from preventing the shooting of the dogs in Guam, we all know that a LONG-TERM solution is also desperately needed.

At 600 Million Dogs, we’re working to develop a long lasting, permanent solution. The solution we are working to develop is called the Spay and Neuter Cookie. When completed, it will be a safe, permanent lasting birth control cookie for dogs and cats. A cookie that will need to be eaten only one time to safely sterilize a stray without requiring surgery.

Thousands of stray dogs in Guam are in need of this, as are the millions of homeless dogs and cats who are killed in U.S. shelters each year.

Development of a permanent lasting one-dose birth control cookie is still in the R&D stage, and sadly, the drug companies are not working on it.

We, on the other hand, are working on it.

We are undertaking the job of developing a one-dose permanent birth control cookie -- a job that normally costs drug companies hundreds of millions of dollars.

We are carrying out this job even though we are by no means a drug company.

In fact, we are a very small grassroots nonprofit charity.

We rely entirely on contributions.

Our total budget is less than $300,000.

We're making progress but we need full-time scientists to speed up the process, and this is why we need help.

If you would like to support this work -- to develop a permanent birth control cookie to end the overpopulation problem -- please do.

Gifts of any amount are tax deductible, and are very much needed and appreciated. Please do not forget to contact the Governor of Guam to stop the shootings, and thank you for all of your support.

Best Wishes,

Maria Papazian
