I follow a lot of animal rescue sites on Facebook. Many of them show dogs and cats that are due to be killed within a short period of time, usually a day or two. The rescues are looking for foster homes and donations to cover vetting and other expenses.
My wife and I at the present time have five cats and two dogs. I cannot understand how anyone could stick a needle full of poison into one of these dogs or cats pictured. I can understand someone really needing a job, but when I see statistics of shelters that kill a hundred or more in a day, I would think it would eat away at a person’s soul. I really think I would starve to death if killing healthy animals was my only source of food.
