Founded in 2009 by legendary animal rights activist Alex Pacheco, 600 Million Dogs was created in response to an experience Alex had in Mexico. While walking down a crowded street in the country, he came across a pile of stray dogs who appeared to be deceased, but were actually alive and attempting to avoid the crowds.
Greatly distressed by what he witnessed, Alex knew that this suffering was the result of overpopulation. He then became determined to develop a cookie that would safely and effectively spay and neuter dogs in only one dose.
Since then, the organization has continuously researched how we can make the Spay and Neuter Cookie a reality in order to help the hundreds of millions of stray dogs all over the world.
