The city of San Jose, the capital of Silicon Valley has many great things to offer, stable economy, wonderful weather and geography and a great diversity of cultures. San Jose is the third largest city in California and also one of the most prosperous. However, like many cities San Jose is not exempt of animal over-population. Dog over population can be controlled and solved by spaying and neutering dogs, and also by adopting from a local shelter or rescue group.
