Yep, it definitely happens - there's shelters around me that do that. Definitely not morally right. Our shelter doesn't euthanise animals due to being there too long - only for aggression or health issues that can't be fixed. They do NOT call themselves no-kill though. If anyone asks they say just that - they DO PTS if necessary.

Are these names; kill shelter and no kill shelter, official names?
And is it leagal that no-kill shelter drop off their cats to a kill shelters?
After 3 days up for adoption, rather than "after 3 days". At the shelter I volunteer at, a surrendered cat is up for adoption pretty much the next day, whereas strays are kept for 10 days I think before going up for adoption providing they're in good health.
And no, they are not official names. In reality every shelter is a "kill" shelter. I would consider any shelter that calls itself no kill cruel. What happens to the really sick animals?? What if a cat turns really aggressive, nothing can be done and it is not adoptable despite best efforts????
