In the US, the many of the dogs used by ICE are shelter rescues. They're socialized for a year before they're trained. They're also spayed/neutered.

In many countries, spaying and neutering is considered an atrocious act of mutilation. But most Western countries don't have the stray problem we have. But most of Asia has a worse problem.

Actually, if people looked at the numbers of animals destroyed humanely in most western countries

I think they'd all be in favour of neutering. In a mslal country like Ireland, thousands of stray dogs are authenised every year - a number that would drop significantly if pets were fixed. Similarly with cats.

It is unpleasant, but it can avoid worse fates for any offspring
