Testimonials

"GoodDogz.org has been a very positive force for animal rescue in Northern Virgina. The Reston Pet Fiesta has given our group wonderful exposure each year and has brought a lot of people out to see rescue dogs. We have also referred many adopters and potential adopters to the GoodDogz.org website for links to valuable resources. Keep up the good work!"  Pam McAlwee, Founder, Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation

 Reasons to Spay and Neuter Your Pets

rosemary"I receive many e-mails each day from different rescue groups about fur kids that need homes or they will be put to death. I wished there was some way that we could truly make people understand how important it is to spay or neuter their pets. There is nothing wrong with a dog not procreating, just as it is acceptable for a person to not procreate. Allowing animals to breed will not save them from some emotion or physical harm, as some of the old wives tales might lend themselves to believing. I would beg anyone to please, before you allow your dogs to breed, take a trip to an animal shelter and think of the homes these animals will never know. These animals will die a cold death, be it by the hands of a dog warden, on a cold steel table, in a room full of gas or even worse. These are the animals that will never know what love and happiness is. Ask yourself, "Do I want to be a partner to this?"
