In Mississippi,
dogs and cats are
a shameful export
Some exports are better than others. In
Mississippi, poultry, forest and agricultural
products such as corn, cotton and soybeans
are exports that share the state’s economy.
Other exports aren’t exactly something to
crow about.
Each year, Mississippi sends hundred of
unwanted dogs to the northeast, where the
demand is high and the supply low because
of that area’s enlightened approach to pet
ownership.
For years now, humane societies and
rescue groups have been transporting dogs
north by cars and vans. On Sunday, that
effort took to the air. Seventy-four dogs were
flown to Delaware on Sunday through the
national Wings of Rescue, which has trans-
ferred more than 18,000 animals across the
country during the past two years.
While we applaud this effort, we continue
to be dismayed by the necessity of it.
Certainly, these transfers serve a good
and useful purpose, reducing the strain that
is placed on local shelters through over-
crowding and, of course, providing homes for
hundreds of perfectly good pets who might
otherwise be euthanized.
The down side is that, after all these
years, it’s clear that Mississippi has not
responded well to the call for people to spay/
neuter their pets. There are no “wild” dogs in
Mississippi. Every stray was either some-
one’s pet or the offspring of someone’s pet.
In each case, a person has failed to live up to
a basic responsibility common to all pet own-
ers — to provide a safe, healthy environment
for the pet.
The frustrating part is that there are a
number of programs that provide free or
no-cost spay/neuter services throughout the
year, including a mobile program operated
by the Mississippi State University School of
Veterinary Medicine. Simply put, there is no
valid reason why any dog or cat should not be
spayed/neutered.
In the northeast, many states have laws
requiring dogs and cats to be spayed and
neutered. In others, there is simply an ethos
that considers spay/neuter as much a part of
pet ownership as providing food and shelter.
Unfortunately in Mississippi, there are
no such requirements, which means that
unwanted pets will continue to be an ex-
port item in our state. It also means a lot of
animals that would make wonderful pets and
companions will be euthanized.
That’s the shameful reality.
