|As much as we love puppies, something must be done about the rampant
breeding going on in Kern County and other areas.. There are over 100
puppies (unweaned or very young) in the Bakersfield shelter as I type this.
There are not enough foster homes for them all. Many will start and end
their lives in a concrete run. The momma dogs do their best, only to watch
as their pups are taken away to die, and then, they too lose their lives.
The dogs on this page are lucky, they will be allowed to raise their families
in a secure, quiet location with plenty of food & love. The pups will recieve
proper vaccinations and then will be spayed/neutered (as will their moms)
so they will not contribute to the over population problem.
Please spay and neuter. Thank you.
