GONE TO THE DOGS
Catalyst May Issue 1998
Just when we think we’ve head it all, we find out that we’re wrong. Try this one on for size: did you know that the reason why Puerto Rico has too many dogs is because the island is predominantly Catholic? That’s right. According to Teresa Warrick of the Greenhill Humane Society, Puerto Rico is overpopulated with dogs because the most of the people who live there are Catholic and they don’t believe in spaying or neutering their pets. Though there was apparently no comment from Frances Kissling on this matter, we do expect to hear from her soon.
The Catholic League finds this hard to believe. We believe that the real reason why there are so many dogs in Puerto Rico is because their diet allows them to live longer: they don’t eat meat on Fridays.
