“You cannot adopt, rescue or warehouse your way out of overpopulation.” -Dr. Jeffrey Young
This is one of Dr. Jeff’s most remarkable quote, it is about the importance of spaying and neutering above all other methods of action in animal welfare. Dr. Jeffrey Young is a world known veterinarian and owner of Planned Pethood Plus & Planned Pethood International, he also have an international TV show in Animal Planet called “The Rocky Mountain Vet”. He has been travelling all over the world to advocate spaying and neutering, he has created a big impact for over 30 years of his advocacy. He have also build low-cost veterinary clinics in Mexico and veterinary training center in Slovakia. He stands by his mission to help reduce pet over population all over the world through thinking globally and acting locally.
We are indeed very fortunate and grateful to be able to join his Japan tour. The campaign “Spay It Forward” and “Time for Low-Kill” is headed by Mr. Yamasaki Hiro, he has been an animal welfare advocate in Japan for more than a decade, it all started when a earthquake in his hometown changed his life towards animals. He is now determined to build a human bridge with animal welfare advocates and veterinarians in Japan with other countries. He greatly supports PPBCC Foundation and our spay and neuter advocacy, through inviting us, we had the opportunity to present our foundation to the Japanese community and share the work that we do in the Philippines.
It has been an unforgettable experience to visit different places in Japan and see different situations that animal welfare advocates, veterinarians and supporters are facing. “No-Kill” movement has been becoming rampant in Japan, and it is alarming as “No-Kill” movement is a delicate and controversial issue.
Dr. Jeffrey Young presented and explained the dangers of “No Kill” movement and how it harbors more harm than good for the animals. He have not seen a shelter / warehousing that practiced “No Kill” without unintentionally causing cruelty because of negligence and incapacity. A shelter that takes in and keeps more animals than they are capable of only causes suffering to all the animals in their care. Some of which doesn’t even practice spaying and neutering the animals that comes in and out. It cost a huge amount of money and never meets the quality of life that each animal deserves. It also doesn’t solve over population. “I believe no-kill shelters are the most inhumane trend in animal welfare. ” -Dr. Jeff
5 Freedoms of Animals
- Freedom from hunger and thirst (food and water)
- Freedom from discomfort (shelter)
- Freedom from pain, injury and disease (medical care)
- Freedom to express normal behavior (exercise)
- Freedom from fear and distress (love and understanding)
“Low kill” is a movement that should be applied in all private and government shelters. It includes proper assessment of each animal that are fit for adoption and those that needs to be put to sleep. Dr. Jeff points out that he is not after euthanizing healthy and adoptable animals, he is for those animals that physically doesn’t have the quality of life anymore or are highly aggressive that it will be impossible for them to be re-homed and will pose more harm towards people and other animals. In perspective these shelters should also measure the amount of animals they can intake. And above all mandate spaying and neutering for all the animals that comes in. This is the only way sheltering will be humane. More discussions and questions arose in Dr. Jeff’s talk, it created a healthy debate for the Japanese community and clarifications on the ongoing “No Kill” movement.
In Hiroshima, the students of Hiroshima International School surprised us with their level of understanding with the on-going situation, they also presented their own interpretation of the pet over population and “No Kill” movement. They are the hope of the future and we are very impressed with their presentation.
The day before they also gave a tour at the “Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park”
We are determined to make a change in the lives of the dogs and cats of the Philippines.
One of our dreams is to have our own spay and neuter transport van. This van will help us to reach more areas and help more animals in need of low cost/free spay and neuter. The time to start is now.
Please support our aim to END HOMELESSNESS NOW.

Last Saturday we held our summer low-cost spay and neuter program at Imus, Cavite.
We have neutered 148 dogs and cats! We are thankful to all the pet owners who patiently stayed and wait for their turn.
It was a joy to see each of them going home knowing that they have contributed to making a change for the future of companion animals. Neutering is a choice that every pet owner have to make and we are hoping this will encourage others to make the same step.
