WHO ARE THE “DOGS WITH NO NAMES”?
“Dogs With No Names” have been accompanying mankind for as long as we have explored the world, dogs have been working animals and companions for thousands of years. Evolved from wolves living on the fringe of human habitation, dogs have endured through history, remaining faithfully by our side. They are innocent bystanders of the changes and events that make our world such as it is today. Whether they are First Nations reserve dogs in Canada or street dogs in Brazil, they share one big problem: there are too many of them. Though they are a domesticated species, many of these dogs are not tame enough to be companion dogs. Nor are they still wild enough to survive on their own. Caught between two worlds, they are the dogs with no names.
In 2009, a scientific pilot program was initiated to humanely reduce the population of unwanted dogs on two First Nations reserves in southern Alberta. For the first time ever, contraceptive implants inserted under the skin of female dogs, many of them semi-feral and feral in nature, would be used as a form of birth control to prevent vast numbers of dogs from being born in the first place. It was hoped that if successful, this program could be used in communities where shelter facilities do not exist, vet services are not available and excess dogs are without care.
“So a dog without human companionship is doomed to suffer and die.
Freedom is death for a dog.” – Judith Samson-French DVM, from the book: Dogs With No Names
