Amen! Well said!


Thanks for making the point about no-kill shelters. We adopted two of our guys from one and have since had several people imply that it's more compassionate and meaningful to adopt from a kill shelter. I have to (kind of defensively) explain that all the rescue groups and shelters in the area draw from the same pool of homeless pets, so any adoption takes pressure off the system.


Very nice post. Well said!

Amen, Sister! The thought of the Kill shelters makes me want to hurt somebody, but adopting from the 'No Kill' shelters opens up slots for hope. Bottom Line and the First Rule of Decency is that if you bring an animal into your house then you treat this living soul as a member of your family. You neuter them, feed them, love them and protect them. If you can not afford to keep them then you find them a home that will do the above for them.

There is no excuse to abandon, abuse or not provide your pet with the same love and attention you would give to any other member of your family. And if you do not recognize this as a pre-requisite for owning a pet then you need to find a loving home for this soul and seriously ask yourself about your lack of the basic beliefs of humanity.


Amen, amen, amen.
