Uruguay/How are dogs treated by the people of Uruguay?

But not being crual has nothing to do with surviving as a human? I lived in Greece and people tend to poison strays or even pets belonging to other people. I do not think that they do it in order to survive themselves but out of sheer lack of education and barbarism. I understand the questions about whether or not animals are well treated or not. i personally would never want to live again a in a place where even your pet runs the risk of being poisonned!

Thank you for your information. It too have the same problem with not being able to watch any animal suffer. I currently live in Mexico and at one point we left, in part, due to dead dogs, horses, cows, donkeys etc. littering the roads, but did return years later to a situation that was much improved by spay neuter groups and animal rights laws being passed.

We are considering Uruguay which is how I found this post. Thank you for your information.

You can ask me questions about culture, government, visas, and travel in Uruguay. Uruguay is a beautiful country that offers much more than the general public would be aware of. Give it a try.


I lived in Uruguay for two years. While there I learned Spanish, which I speak and write fluently. I also learned about one of the most beautiful cultures in South America that comes from a rich Spanish heritage mixed with a lot of Italian and Spaniards and a little bit of German. I travel to South America quite often and have dealt with almost all aspects of life from business to travel to religion to conversing with the shoe shine boys.
