Solution to the crisis
Dr Jeffrey Young graduated from Colorado State University School of Veterinary
Medicine in 1989. He established Planned Pethood Plus, Inc (PPP) in 1990. PPP is
best know for its low-cost mobile neutering services, Native American Reservation
work, and training of veterinarians from around the world in more efficient surgical
techniques. Dr. Young has served on numerous Human Society boards and has been
an advisor from mobile surgical units all across America. He has founded his own
non-profit group called Planned Pethood International.               Planned Pethood
International was established to help fund spay/neuter work and veterinary training
from its new state of the art veterinary hospitals in Bratislava, Slovakia and
Merida, Mexico. Dr. Young believes his human ethics come from being an Animal
Control Officer during his veterinary college training. He is most proud of having
personally sterilized over 165,000 animals in the last 20 years, and he is an outspoken
proponent of early age neutering for companion animals population control. Dr.
Young is driven by a simple underlying mission “to significantly reduce companion
animal overpopulation through out the world.”

                          “Think Globally Act Locally “
The Only Real Solution to
                 Companion Animal
                  Overpopulation
               Paradigm shift in social attitudes.




No euthanasia of                        Dogs and Cats will
healthy, adoptable                      be valued as true
animals.                                companion animals.
Economics 101: Supply vs. Demand



                  Dogs VS Cats



Reproduce only to enhance
the breed, allow only the    Spay/neuter all surplus
best of breed to             and non-breed standard
reproduce, homes secured     animals. All adoptable
in advance.                  animals must be neutered
                             prior to adoption.

The Cold Harsh Facts
   Between 30 – 60 % of adopting owners Do Not abide by spay/neuter contracts.

   Humane Societies provide 25-30 % of companion animals to households each
    year.

   Dogs are 15 X and Cats 45 X more prolific than Humans.

   There is around 80 million dogs and 96 million cats and countless millions
    feral/stray cats in America.

   87 + % of cats and 76 + % of dogs in households today have been neutered, but
    about 20 % produce at least one litter prior to being sterilized.

   Number “1”cause of Death for companion animals remains Euthanasia.

   Cause of death for feral/stray animals is far worse!
       HBC, disease, poisoning, predation and starvation.
