Perhaps there should be a statement added to this interesting interview that most dogs put up for adoption in northeastern U.S. pounds (shelters if you like) are cases of rescue, many of them from beyond the local area. A good deal of this phenom seems to be caused by the largely successful programs of neutering and spaying young dogs given up or captured in the New England area. A question that has hit my mind, on occasion, is what will local shelters do if and when they run out of source areas such as southern states and Puerto Rico from which many rescued dogs now originate?
