Stop Street Dog Suffering

Help ensure street dogs around the world will not share the tragic fate of those in Sochi.
Millions of street dogs (often referred to as stray dogs) must survive on their own worldwide. Just like the travesty in Sochi, Russia, governments deal with this overpopulation through "extermination" such as poisoning, electrocution, and shooting. There are more humane and effective ways to address the overpopulation of street dogs.
Getting these street populations to reasonable levels of healthy, sterilized, and vaccinated dogs increases the standard of living for these animals as well as decreases the spread of rabies amongst both dogs and people. In turn, this improves the dogs' image in the eyes of local human populations. When street dogs are sterilized and vaccinated they are healthier, and the people are happier. Local community humane education is another great way to better the lives of these animals. Humane Society International (HSI) is already seeing great results in the fight for street dogs. For example, from donations like yours, the street dog population in Bhutan, Asia, has been cut by 50% in 3 short years.
You can help. Just $12.00 provides vaccinations for one street dog.
Humane Society International (HSI) and its partner organizations together constitute one of the world's largest animal protection organizations - backed by 11 million people. For nearly 20 years, HSI has been fighting for the protection of all animals through advocacy, education, and hands-on programs, celebrating animals and confronting cruelty worldwide.
