Christine Joy Soguilon started this petition to PAWS (Philippine Animal Welfare Society) and

Everytime we pass by, we always see dogs or cats wandering and looking for food in garbages causing them to be malnourished and get sickness. This is one of the problems that people and even the government are ignoring. We took pity for them but don't do anything. When people are inconvenienced by too many cats or dogs, they left them in streets or sidewalks. These stray animals will mate with other strays causing them to get pregnant and give birth making the population of strays higher. There is a high risk that cruel people will get them, use them for slaughter and sell in markets. Dogs and cats waste are also affecting the environment. Their poop are everywhere making people irritated because of the smell, and it doesn't look good for the environment.

Each month, an average city pound in the Philippines puts down 200 unwanted and unclaimed dogs. From 2006 to 2015, CARA Clinic spayed and neutered, 14,011 cats and 543 dogs. In 2017, HSI’s partnership with the Cebu City government helped to prevent communicable diseases like rabies. They have conducted over 22,000 surgeries and 41,000 vaccinations through this program. It is time for us to make this changes too.

These are the consequences if this petition is ignored:

       ✓ Stray animals doesn't have a home nor food to eat to be able to survive. The foods they found in streets and in garbages can expose them in diseases.

       ✓ If not spay/neuter, the number of stray cats and dogs will continue to increase


       ✓ The wastes of the animals are everywhere making the appearance of the environment not good.

This petition focuses on the philosphical views in Social Ecology because this ideology looks to reconstruct and transform current outlooks and sees a relationship between social and environmental problems.

The following are the benefits(merits) if spay/neuter:


       ✓ It increases life expectancy of pets and reduces overhealth issue.


       ✓ No more heat cycles and behavioral changes and urge to find a mate, which reduces the tendency to leave the house and be exposed to harm.


       ✓ It also prevents adding to the number of unwanted pets lessening their risk of being killed and decrease the number of homeless and starving animals.

Solution
Spaying and neutering your dogs and cats can help reduce animals in the street and the risk of harm in their health and life. There are a lot of plastic bottles, cans and papers that people use and this recyclable materials can help this petition work. We can give our recyclable materials to our community, government, PAWS and other animal organization then they will sell it and the money we can get there will be the resource. With this, not only the people will benefit but also the community. It also contributes to the environment problem about plastic.

The bottom line is that too many pets can cause problems not just for animals but also for humans. They are wandering to find food, sleeping in the cold floor, don't have a shelter when it rains and it makes my heart ache. Seeing them in the streets being hit by a car with their flesh coming out and eyes that already have died because of the loneliness that only us can fix. We can't take all the strays in shelters that's why this petition came to my mind to help lessen its population. I hope that your good heart will help me fulfill this! Let's make this country a better place to live in!
