Mission Statement

The Mission of 600 Million Stray Dogs Need You is to bring an end to the number-two cause of animal suffering in the world -- animal overpopulation -- and to provide the world with an effective, safe, affordable, and non-violent method of controlling animal populations. Our approach is to use the latest scientific advancements and inspire people to volunteer their resources to assist in developing unique, long-lasting, single-dose sterilization pills for animals -- beginning with dogs and expanding to cats and other animals in need, such as horses and farm animals.

Our goals are the following: 1) To free virtually every humane society world-wide of their most expensive problem -- animal overpopulation -- and end the violent killing of over one billion animals each year; 2) To prevent the deaths of the 55,000 people who die every year from being bitten by overpopulated stray dogs; 3) To provide developing nations and low-income individuals with a practical and affordable alternative to costly surgical animal sterilization; 4) To enable agencies to reduce their use of inferior animal overpopulation control methods, the most common being poison, which has many negative effects such as the unintentional killing of non-targeted animals, as well as people.

600MILLIONSTRAYDOGSNEEDYOU IS THE GREATEST ANTI-CRUELTY CAMPAIGN TO EVER COME ALONG! IT CUTS RIGHT TO THE HEART OF ALL THE WORLD WIDE MISERY AND SUFFERING OF DOGS AND CATS. WE DOMESTICATED THEM AND MADE THEM DEPENDANT ON US AND THEN WE ABUSE AND NEGLECT THE HELL OUT OF THEM. THIS PROGRAM HAS TO BE SUCESSFUL.
