I'm trying not to throw up...OMG!!!! I don't even have words to describe what I'm feeling right now...I'm angry and sad...How can someone live with themselves after doing that day in and day out?!?!?! Wow, and I thought putting an animal to sleep weighed heavy... :' (
I think they may have gotten numb to the fact that this is something that has to be done, know what I mean? They probably don't like it any more than the rest of us but the real issue here is the fact that there are way too many dogs than there are homes...........
We can't blame the shelters for having to make room b/c of the irresponsibilty of people in a society....
Yeah, I saw him pet the dog. But just like you I would NEVER do that.
I'm just making a promise to myself now that I will adopt 98% of my next pets from shelters. I will try to foster animals and maybe if I have extra money (when I get a better job, out of college, etc.) I will help pay for people to spay/neuter their pets.
100% of my cats are already adopted from shelters and always will be. The past two years I've gotten dogs from breeders (Kelsey and Hayden). Before that though most have been from shelters.
I also always try to donate to the shelter when I can. Fortunately here in Idaho (at least the shelters I know about, which are a lot) they only do injections to put them to sleep.
It's getting frustrating..... the springer rescues haven't replied about her, and I believe the rescue that normally takes these dogs is full. The people that could transport her to me want me to adopt her and not foster, but I can't afford 3 dogs. Blah!!
