This non profit is true to my heart. Everyone involved is passionate about the well being of animals and strives to do what is in the best interest of this over population of stray dogs and cats. I believe with constant support 600 million stray dogs can solve this terrible problem and provide a healthy environment for the animals.

I learned about 600 Million Stray Dogs Need You from a friend and I think the approach to ending the stray animal overpopulation is brilliant! As soon as i learned about this organization, I asked if I could help in any way.

An idea whose time has come! Not only will it help stray dogs and cats but I can see how it can help other animals as well. No more killing as an excuse to control animal overpopulation!

600 Million Dogs is my number one nonprofit to which I donate monthly. They work
continuously to relieve lifelong suffering that the world's stray dogs and cat endure
24/7. 600 asks member to email, write letters, make phone calls and use
social media to contact those responsible for perpetrating harm to our fellow 4 legged friends.

You know, if you never get around to doing a will, all your money will go to your family when you die—not to your friends, not a penny to animal protection groups, and you'd better have talked to a friend about taking in your 15 rescued iguanas. I never thought that paying a fancy estate lawyer to write up my will could make me happy, but it did. Before, I had a do-it-yourself will, but why leave something so important to chance? I wouldn't do that with plumbing or electric work on my house! I don't mean to sound like an ad for expensive lawyers, but now I'm confident that when I die, if I have any money left over, the percentage that I chose will go to my favorite animal groups. Number one on that list is 600 Million Dogs, founded and run by the phenomenal animal activist Alex Pacheco.

I tend to donate to groups that I've volunteered for, because I know and trust the people involved, and I've had the unforgettable experience of volunteering for 600 Million Dogs. Its team consists of intelligent, practical, resourceful people doing their best, day after day, to help animals in an unconventional and creative way, something few would attempt but makes perfect sense: using advances in medicine and technology to help animals. It's uncharted territory, but that is something Pacheco excels at, tenaciously plowing ahead without a road map, despite all obstacles.

This year, 2020, as COVID-19 ravages the human population, what do most people place their hopes on, aside from eating right and getting plenty of exercise? A vaccine and a treatment. We not only HOPE that medical science will end this tragedy, we EXPECT it. We're counting on it. Billions of dollars are being poured into scientific research to help us deal with this terrible disease.

In contrast, although pills, patches and other nonsurgical methods of birth control for humans have been around for decades, funding is really hard to come by when the goal is an inexpensive, nonsurgical, permanent form of birth control that's easy to administer to animals. Stray animals are suffering and dying around the world, and humans aren't even doing this on purpose. The animals are just innocent victims of uncontrolled overpopulation. So I think this is an area ripe for change. I wish I had a billion dollars to donate to 600 Million Dogs TODAY because, sadly, Alex Pacheco won't be around forever to lead the way.

I know people don't like to think about dying. But honestly, if I die tomorrow, I'll die happy knowing my affairs are in order and 600 Million Dogs will get at least some of the funding they need to complete the Spay/Neuter Cookie. It's not enough, but if others do the same, we just might win this battle for the animals.

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.

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!

600 Millions founder, Alex Pacheco, has been at the forefront of Big Ideas for decades - the Silver Spring monkey undercover expose, co-founding PETA. Now, with 600 Million Stray Dogs Need You he's there again. It may take time and some may dismiss the idea - but when the day comes that a simple pill can prevent reproduction and cause overpopulation to crash, countless dogs and cats will avoid a life of misery scavenging to survive (and those that profit off of expensive spay-neuter surgeries and others who make a buck "euthanizing" strays (11,000 a DAY in the US alone) will be forced to find a way news ways of making a living rather than off the backs of innocent animals.

I think the concept of creating a sterilization pill for animals instead of doing surgery is ingenious!! Alex Pacheco, the Founder of this group, Sixmilliondogs.org and his wonderful volunteers should be highly commended for their hard work, love, commitment and dedication towards trying to end the over population of animals. This in turn will spare unwanted animals from being born on the streets where they either die of starvation or fall into the wrong hands and get tortuted;((
A huge heartfelt thank you to Alex and the volunteers for being involved in this amazing and EXtremely important mission!!

Alex is a mastermind when it comes to doing the right things for animal rights and treatment. A lot of people have no idea what is going one with the over abundance of dogs and cats that are being abandoned or euthanized. In my town alone over 10000 dogs and cats were put down last year. Just think on how many other towns are in the same boat! What 600 million dogs need yours doing is totally the best thing that is going in our country. Of all the nonprofits I either have work for or donated to. This is the very best of the best. If anyone has feelings for pets will support the cause of suffering animals, this is a 5 star rating with me. Keep up the good work Mr. Pacheco!
