This organization is the only organization I can see that will have a significant and lasting effect on the global crisis of stray populations spiraling out of control-the effects of which are now being realized. That is one of the main reasons why 600 Million Dogs have my devoted support. Having known Alex Pacheco personally for many years I can attest to his integrity and devotion to his mission. He's like the snapping turtle that won't let go.

I’m a longtime volunteer and donor to 600 Million Dogs, and it’s absolutely my favorite, if-I-ever-win-the-lottery-my-money-is-going-to-you group. Why? Number one: 600’s leader, Alex Pacheco. In my book, he’s the guy who made the animal rights movement go viral. After that, he risked his safety and freedom for animals again and again, and it paid off: he changed the world for the better. If history has any sense, history will remember Alex Pacheco.
Number two: 60 years ago, oral birth control was shocking. People couldn’t believe it worked. Now it’s taken for granted. For animals, permanent birth control is what’s needed, but progress has been slow for economic reasons. True to form, Alex has seen a critical problem and focused on it, regardless of the odds, regardless of the consequences. It’s bad enough that people kill animals intentionally, for selfish reasons, but dogs and cats, supposedly the most beloved animals on earth, being killed in crude, painful ways, often just for getting in people’s way? Or left to suffer, starving, on the streets? We have to do better. How do you tackle such a huge problem without feeling overwhelmed? “Baby steps,” he says. He’s done it before. He has a way of creating order out of chaos--through innovation, determination, and hard work.
It would be easy to share our progress if we were a rescue or advocacy group. But we’re not, and we need to keep some information confidential until a final product is ready. Then we can roll out the cameras. Until then, I hope you’ll understand that we need to raise funds to pay scientists to do this work and that scientific advancement takes time. I hope you’ll have faith in Alex’s integrity so that in the long run, the animals will benefit, not big drug companies. And I hope you’ll remember that money doesn’t grow on trees and fundraising is not a crime. If you have $100 and you need $1,000 to pay the vet to save your dog, you need to raise the money somehow. It’s as simple as that.
I’m working harder for 600 than I ever worked for money, and it’s the experience of a lifetime. I hope you’ll check out what we can disclose about our science at https://www.600milliondogs.org/science-update and read about Alex’s accomplishments at https://www.600milliondogs.org/about-us Thanks!

As an employee of this incredible organization, I can attest to the fact that we are indeed working hard and making progress. As with all science based projects, it takes time but we are all dedicated to our cause, working hard to create a solution that will end the suffering.

In regards to the comment "no fool" made: I am hurt to see these uneducated comments. For instance, you cant "follow" an organization for 15 years that has only been around for 8. Instead of typing away your negativity about a person who has a 40 year track record for helping animals and his organization that is working tirelessly to bring an end of suffering of millions of dogs, perhaps you should do some research. Or better yet, maybe YOU can do something to make a difference.

I believe this is a scam. I have been following them for over 15 years, and they have come up with nothing. They send out news letters that say, "We're close to a formula." "We expect to have our cookie out in 18 months." "We have a formula that will work in just three doses." But then they have absolutely nothing. They do absolutely nothing. Dont be fooled, this is just about collecting donations to line their pockets. They have been making claims for many years and have not saved any animals at all.

Such amazing and groundbreaking work on behalf of the dog population on our planet. 600 Million Dogs and it’s founder, Alex Pacheco, are working tirelessly on a breakthrough solution to the overpopulation problem.

I fully support the life changing endeavor the 600MillionDogs.org is working on.

Developing a one dose birth control cookie to address the horrible crisis of overpopulation is the solution to this worldwide problem.

Based on Alex’s track record of historical victories for animals, I have full confidence that he will find the breakthrough and develop the compound in the form of a cookie that will END the suffering of millions of animals.

Please support this bold initiative to combat the heartbreaking suffering that so many dogs (and cats) endure.

With 40 years of experience in the animal rights movement, Alex has demonstrated passion and commitment that is unparalleled. I believe that he and his devoted team of scientists will uncover the complicated task of developing a spay/neuter formula that will be life changing.

More shelters are not the solution to the stray dog situation. Permanent birth control is. I believe that Pacheco is on to something big. Global. Lifesaving.

After several years of following 600 I am a great believer in this organisation. Their tieless work and determination has helped countless stray dogs and I do believe if we support this non profit mission the tragic situation of stray dogs can and will be solved. I am a Spanish resident living in Marbella and it is heartbreaking to see these poor animals suffer. Please let us support 600 and support this important work.

As an animal-lover, for some time now my philanthropy has been focused on www.600milliondogs.org. This group, the head of which co-founded PETA back in 1980, is putting together a biscuit which once consumed will immediately, permanently, and safely spay/neuter. Dogs and ultimately cats as well. One look at the You Tube videos of horrific animal suffering coming out of Romania and Greece and China and India and the Philippines and even first world countries can only convince that efficient spay/neuter is the ONLY solution to relentless breeding. Mother Nature is just too good at what she does.

Thank you - a solution is at hand!
