On Dominance and Animal Birth Control

When taking the issue to simplest common denominator, spaying/neutering is essentially exercising human dominance over non-human animals. But my stance is also categorized under Gray Matters because, in my perfect world, we wouldn't be spaying or neutering anybody.

Cat Wars: The Devastating Consequences of a Cuddly Killer

The traditional, supposedly humane answer to the glut of feral cats has been institution of “TNR” programs – trap, neuter, return. TNR has repeatedly been shown to fail to reduce free-ranging cat populations,” the authors say (perhaps because the rate of sterilization in a discrete population has never been close to one hundred percent); and, in any event, neutered or not, feral cat lives are nasty, brutish and short.

Both of those events required the dreaded "cone. I have some left but wanted to save it in the event that the transition didn't work and I needed to buy some time. As for Project Treadstone, after several false starts, trapping, spaying and neutering will resume next week. As many of you know, 2009 was chock full of creature-related drama for me.

Feral Cats in American Cities

10,000 Birds

So I put together a “carnival” (of sorts) of Feral Cat Ordinances and Issues that samples current events across the US. … The ordinance would allow Minneapolis residents to establish cat “colonies” where abandoned and wild cats can be fed but also vaccinated, neutered and identified in an effort to humanely cut their population and control disease.

4 The Love Of Animals

It is an identifying chip that many dogs have implanted into their shoulders to identify their owners in the event of being lost. In order to find a permanent home for your found pit bull as quickly as possible, PBRC suggests that you do the following: • Get your pit bull spayed or neutered and all of its shots. There are programs that exist that make costly vaccines and spaying/neutering affordable. • As a breed, pit bulls have a bad rap.
