Holland Becomes the First Country Without Street Dogs, and Here’s How They Achieved It

Get notifications
Totally misleading article :

Norway (and as far as I know : all of Scandinavia) don't have stray/street dogs - a dog "on the loose" is picked up by either the police or animal shelters and kept for some time (to give owners the chance to find their runaway dog) before they are placed up for adoptions. This has been the practice for years - my parents first dog was adopted from a shelter 50 years ago!!

No, I meant that Holland CANNOT be "first country" when Norway has not had this problem in at least 50 years!!

It didn't say that Holland is the only country without dogs on the street. It's say the first country and that is true. So the article is not misleading if you reed it corectly. So stop with naning.

Love the idea of government getting involved in saving and protecting strays. I wish India would adopt this policy but the government is so corrupt that they have energy and time to save their butts rather than do good. Kudos to the government of Holland for working on behalf of innocent and noble creatures.

I work in an animal shelter in Spain. Holland have saved our kennels from closing. They donate food & have helped with the construction to make kennels so we are able to carry on our good work to take in more abandonded dogs & cats , the vets from Holland come to Spain to sterilise our dogs for free, all we do is feed the vets, they are truly amazing.We will be forever grateful to the Dutch people.

This is awesome news. In South Africa animals have few rights and us in the trenches have to fight to have it implemented. There is ZERO government support for animal welfare.

Yess in every country the must have something like this. Because it so said to see how some people traid animals. In turkey or Marokko there is so many animals dogs, kittens, horsers ect that treated very poorly, My heart breaks to see it and to now it. And I live in Holland and not everything is perfect but we try to our best for our animals.
