Animal welfare groups hit the streets to rescue strays as situation reaches crisis point

Animal welfare groups hit the streets to rescue strays as situation reaches crisis point | Animal Shelters | Scoop.it
Every week, volunteers with Corridor Rescue and other animal welfare groups hit the roads of Houston, their cars full of dog food, flea control and worm medicine, headed for the areas in the city known to be overrun with stray dogs. Volunteers discovered three female dogs, each with a litter of puppies, living at a pipe welding company in the area. While Sochi's stray-animal problem stunned Olympic athletes and caused international outrage, Houston actually faces a far larger epidemic of strays, euthanizing roughly 85,000 animals a year because of overcapacity shelters and animal control officers who are unable to keep up with the breeding dogs already out on the street. Animal rescue organizations and city officials agree the Bayou City has reached a crisis point. The concern over the stray population is welcome to the city's animal control officials, who are building up to presenting a detailed proposal to try to persuade the mayor and the City Council to allot additional money for rescue and relocation efforts. BARC's proposals are expected to contain an outline of exactly how much manpower it would take to get the crisis fully under control, as well as ideas for more extensive sterilization programs to limit breeding.
