The over population of stray dogs and cats has long been out of control in Puerto Rico for lack of animal control and sufficient shelters.  The sight and helplessness of suffering dogs and cats everywhere adversely affects the quality of life in Puerto Rico, including tourism, a large part of the island’s income.  Sick animals spread diseases among themselves and can transmit at least six diseases to human beings. Dead animals are often left to rot where they die. Residents and tourists alike are demoralized by these sights.
