Pets.TV is dedicated to bringing the public news, information, entertainment and a point of view that promotes the health and welfare of companion animals. At Pets.TV.com we believe pets are a precious gift and that: The solution to the problem of homeless pets is to have mandatory low cost spay /neuter programs. Every county and/or city should have a shelter that meets humane standards, promotes adoption and requires spay/neuter before adoption. We have a duty to work to improve the living conditions of mistreated companion animals and to raise public awareness about them. Public officials have an obligation to pursue policy initiatives and legislation that protect the health and welfare of companion animals. We strongly believe that most pet owners consider their pets to be an absolute part of their family and PetsTV.com will endeavor to reflect the joy, love and benefits they provide.
