What Holland Did To Eliminate Stray Dogs Is Extreme
There isn't a single homeless dog in Holland. What they did to eliminate the issue of homeless and abandoned dogs may seem extreme, but many countries may want to look at doing the same. Homeless dogs in the United States outnumber homeless people 5 to 1. The statistics on stray dogs are alarming and yet, people continue to buy puppies from pet stores.

The decision to buy a dog should be a big one with the long term in mind.

Approximately one in ten of these street dogs has been spayed or neutered which means the number of strays is likely to increase. One country in particular has found a solution to the problem.
