Safer sex for HK's animals: a fund-raiser that looks to be wild

Discount neutering to reduce strays

A $500,000 neutering programme has been launched as part of a campaign to reduce Hong Kong's mushrooming stray dog population by 7,500 over the next 10 years.

The number of stray dogs in the city has reached an estimated 25,000 and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is seeking help to cut the number by 30 per cent by 2016.

Neuter a dog and save $70

DOG owners whose pets are neutered will escape a $70 licence fee underproposed legislation.

Dogs should be neutered

IS there a Department of Morons in the Agriculture and Fisheries Department (AFD)? Does anyone really believe that destroying healthy dogs with homes to go to will help control the stray dog population?

This is on the right track, but the position is not so simple.
