The drones are playing their part in preparation for a new TV series that will begin airing in May. The show, "Operation Houston, Stray Dog City," will have 12 episodes chronicling the lives of Houston's stray dogs and the efforts being made to save them. The man behind the effort is Tom McPhee, executive director of the World Animal Awareness Society.

Among the participants:
Volunteers from Forgotten Dogs of the Fifth Ward have a regular feeding route in their section of Houson and work in tandem with rescue groups to get dogs off the streets.

Alex Pacheco's charity, 600 Million Dogs is working to develop Spay Food, a pet food that will sterilize any dog who eats it in just one feeding. Their product is currently in clinical trials.

If we have 70,000,000, I bet 600 million is closer to the actual number worldwide.
It's a monumental task.
The American Strays Project aims to go far beyond filming the strays of the cities it visits. Its mission is to help solve the problem. It provides information and resources to the Humane Society and others who care for homeless animals. Working with teachers in Detroit, it developed Good Pet Guardian lesson plans for Michigan 4th graders
|They are hoping to start this program country-wide.|
