July 6, 2010 (Newswire.com) - Peter Cennamo of Teacher Tech wants people everywhere to know that the United States is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, but our stray and feral animal overpopulation problem (in many areas of this country) rivals that of some of the poorest countries of the world. The saddest fact is that the "pet overpopulation" problem is not one of money, it is one of education.
Research has been conducted (including long-term studies) by many experts around the world that proves effective methods of animal control exist that are both cost-efficient and humane. Yet we continue to spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year on animal control that is not working despite the fact that low-cost effective methods of companion animal population management exist. The vicious cycle of continually funding "trap and kill" programs cannot be broken without education with the goal of adopting proper policies, programs and legislation. Our number one priority must be education with the goal of changing our current thinking, policies and laws on companion animal rights and population control. Teacher Peter Cennamo will be lecturing on the rewards of pet adoption as a way to save the lives of these lovable pets.
