We cannot repeat enough how important it is to spay or neuter your pets.
The national figures released in June 2016 for the previous year, 2015, show that the total number of dogs that entered the Pound system was 13,051. Of them 7,964 dogs were strays entered onto the system. 1,824 dogs were euthanized in the Pound system nationally.
This clearly demonstrates how serious the problem of excess numbers of dogs throughout our country is. There are no comparable statistics for cats, but the excess of cats is sadly much greater than that of dogs.
The figures speak for themselves, the pet population needs to be brought under control, spay or neuter your pets.
