good job getting the word out Tankers 12- but Steph-n-Wolf is right, the momma and papa situation will undoubtedly repeat itself. unforunately, although homes were found, pups were not spayed/neutered first which is going to spell more of their puppies (and their puppies) needing homes and clogging the shelter system. Here's a niblet: I read once that every dollar spent on s/n saves $7 on animal control costs.
be ready with your littany of reasons to s/n - all its benefits on health and behavior http://www.hsus.org/ace/11823
"myths and facts of spaying and neutering HSUS".
I'll even take dogs/pups a day or two before their surgeries and take them there myself just so i know that they arrive at their appointment. Do you think they would be interested in free/ reduced spay/neuter surgeries? what do you think it would take to convince them? http://happypets.addr.com/lost_cost_or_free_spay.htm
