Too Many Puppies

Has this project worked?

We think so, we've run the Too Many Puppies project for five years now starting in September 2016. From this beginning until October 2020 101 dogs have been desexed costing $24,159. We advertised the project in 2016 and 2017 on Facebook and a write up in the local newspaper. Since then the project has been running on a case by case basis.

The project is for the dogs, and for us. It's heart breaking to see a dog put to sleep just because there's too many dogs around. We've been walking the dogs at the Tasman Pound for around 7 years now and over the last three years we've noticed a big decline in the dogs who end up at the Pound.
