Spay FIRST! is a global leader in preventing animal suffering due to unwanted litters.
This is a global issue: worldwide at least half of dogs and cats born are unplanned and unwanted. An estimated 250,000 million street dogs exist globally The average life of a female street dog is under three years. Addressing overpopulation by building shelters is a costly, outdated approach that leaves millions of unwanted animals out in the cold.
Spay FIRST! partners with government agencies and NGOs to find science-based solutions to the animal overpopulation crisis. Non-surgical sterilization will stop the suffering. We lead the charge to find solutions that are on an approval track that will reach the poor first.
When children in poverty witness neglect and cruelty as the norm, and they see animals as disposable, they come to see others and even themselves, as disposable as well. The status quo of neglect, cruelty and eradication is socially, economically and morally corrosive to our global community. We are here to address that challenge head on.
