Over there, there is the use in many conditions of barbaric and painful means: gas chambers, puncturing the heart without sedatives… The dogs that can be adopted in the kilos are in excess. Only every tenth dog finds a home because an animal deposited at the pound generally only has 72 hours to live. It results 13,000 euthanasia per day “, state the association’s members.

Dogs are identified in the United States before they are taken care of by the association that treats them.
They carry out all the necessary examinations to check their health. The association then does what is necessary to process them. They are sterilized, chipped and vaccinated. They are even assessed: are they shy or fierce? Do they like children, cats, other dogs?
Small dogs are transported by flight attendants. Meanwhile, people like Tansy are trying to find home for dogs.
We will put them on the Facebook page and if anyone is interested, they can contact us. The association also assesses potential families and wants to ensure that people have time to dedicate themselves to the dog.
