By the way John...most animal shelters do not use carbon monoxide any longer.
I totally agree with the vet. in this case. Death is not always the worst option. I have been to one of the no kills shelters that is mentioned in this article. It is horrible. There are animals stacked upon animals. Large dogs in cages that they can barely turn around in and they have to live their life this way. Some of them may be lucky enough to get to go out for a 10 minute walk each day. They have no human that cares about them and most get cage rage and turn mean within a week or two. If anything ever happened and I had to turn in my dogs for any reason, I would never give them to a no kill shelter. I have wittnessed what it is like for these animals and I could not put my dogs through that. Most people that turn their animals into these places don't care. They sign them over and leave. They never go back to see if the animal has ever been adopted or to see what kind of life that they are living there. How do you think that these places take care of that many animals? They don't have enough volunteers to help care for them properly. I could understand if these places would limit their take-ins and only take 20 or 25 at a time and not anymore until they adopt one out and then have the room for another. When the numbers hit the 100's, that's a bit much.
