The painful truth about the blantant disregard
Please see the link above. As the most intelligent beings (some could argue against it and rightly so) the things we do to our companion animals is quite frankly disgusting.
I know and fully understand that things happen and hard choices have to be made, but there is a major misconception out there that if you drop your dog or cat at a shelter then they will go to a good home. Chances are that your beloved pet will die in 24 to 72 hours.
Over crowding at shelters forces them to “kill” to make room. The inflow of animals is greater than the outflow.
One way to combat this problem – Spay and Neuter your pets!
I hear the macho crap: but I can’t do that to my “Boy!” Wrong, you can and you should. Not only to save his life, but countless others one accidental pregnancy will produce and from that litter one maybe 2 more unplanned pregnancies and so on and so forth. Before you know it your one dog has led to 20 other puppies or kittens… 19 out of 20 who are likely to die without ever knowing a loving home.
