With all the publicity...I cannot believe money is still being spent on these kill boxes.
No, Katie, I'm glad you posted this;
For those that don't think they can stomach the whole article (although I think it should be required reading and they should even make a movie out of it that everyone will be required to watch), at least consider this quote:
"They are in heaven now, I tell myself. I then start cleaning up the mess, the mess, that YOU PEOPLE are creating by not spay or neutering your animals. The mess that YOU PEOPLE are creating by not demanding that a vet come in and do this humanely. You ARE THE TAXPAYERS, DEMAND that this practice STOP!"
So the next time you complain about needing lower taxes or the next time you let your dog or cat carry a litter to term or the next time you purchase a purebred animal, think about this quote.
I just can't believe that something that we as humans can ommonly hold as one of the greatest atrocities of all times (that is, the deaths of millions of individuals in gas chambers in WWII) is happening to animals in this country TODAY and we still don't spay every single animal we own. OR that we're not absolutely up in arms about this. I just don't get it.
Adopt, don't buy.
Realize the committment of a pet is FOREVER and that things like moving and allergies can taken care of.
And most importantly, SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR ANIMALS!
