wow! ive never seen anything like that before. my stomach is just turning. how come they are allowed to do that? that isnt humane in anyway and my gosh they put people to death on death row more humane then that. and they killed people. it really makes me want to really speak out obout having your animal fixed and this wouldnt be such a problem ... is this really what goes on when they cant find these dogs homes? i never thought obout it before and now i wont beable to get this out of my mind for along time.. i wish you all the best trying to help all those dogs it takes a big person to stand up and try to do something... what a job those men have i couldnt even imagine a cold hearted person could even do that.. guess i was wrong.. best of luck to you i hope some one contacts you.
That's about a four hour drive for me. I'll find out if my family is willing to travel to pick some of them up. I want to rescue I-12, but will have to talk to everyone at home first. I've been talking to a lady who wants to adopt three of my dogs, so hopefully I'll be able to help this one. My mom and dad went shopping so I'll see if one of them wants to go with me Monday. Are they open on the weekends. I don't know what it is about I-12, but I just feel like she needs me. Let me know if you want me to pick up a dog for you and we'll set up all the information. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would love to take in either B-18, the senior male they say just sits there patiently waiting, or A-6, the guy they said looks to have had a tough life and looks mal-nourished. I live in Delaware though. If anybody is going to go and get some of these guys out and can help me plan a way to get one of these two to me, I am willing.
Many years ago, about 12, I went to our local shelter and looked for the oldest dog and least adoptable one I could find. I found this very old terrier mix girl, not many teeth, not much hair left along her back and she walked slow and stiff. Her pink skin looked like dried up tissue paper. What hair she did have was white and wirey.She was a very unattractive dog! When I went to the front desk and told them I wanted to adopt her, they tried to talk me into adopting a younger dog that they said deserved a chance. I guess they felt this girl had lived her life. She was due to be put down in 2 days. I insisited, and took her home. I named her Annie. That old dog crapped all over my house and relentlessly would take things off the coffee table in the living room. But you know what, I would still have chose her again. She lived almost 2 more years and enjoyed every bit of that time. It made me feel good to bring her home. I am a sucker for old dogs, and needy ones like the one they said had a tough life. I'm always going to pick the one that nobody wants to adopt.
OMG !! thelifeofriley ! i couldnt watch the whole thing. that one little yellow lab puppy was wagging his tail when they put him in that box ! he didnt have a clue. and the screaming. i am sick to my stomach . thats too much for me to take........
omg, those poor dogs, sitting there all looking around and they have no clue whats going to happen next. i dont know why they call them shlelters either. they are killers. i cried when i watched it and i have to be honest i could not finish it. i just watched to the part when they stopped putting the dogs in. if they showed anything else i couldnt handle it. uhhhh this is so sad. those poor poor babies in there, the sad part is THEY cant do anything to save themselves. i wish it wasnt legal.
I couldn't handle that video too, I watched the whole thing earlier today and cried.
I SO wish I could help take dogs but I have two of my own, I have a small backyard, not much time, money, etc. I also live in Boise, Idaho.
I do know that most of my next pets will be shelter animals (every cat I've had were from shelters but dogs I've gotten from shelters, other people, and breeders). Probably 98% of my next pets will be shelter pets. I will also be able to foster but unfortunately I can't do any of these things for a few years (I'm a new college student).
Gosh I hope people can help these poor dogs. I've seen dogs/cats euthinized (sp?) before but only by injection, that is sad enough but that was absolutely horrible.
I believe it is the same video I saw a few months ago but I couldn't bring myself to watch it again; it literally plays on my mind and really depresses me; what a horrible and cruel world.
I remember emailing the mayor and pleading with him to stop the gas chambers; I believe that quite a few people from all over the world emailed this creature but obviously it has been all to no avail. This sickens me. It's too much to hope that such a person with a heart of stone can change his ways.
I just can't understand people that have no love for animals; if I lived 10 lifetimes I would still have difficulty coming to grips with such individuals.
