Question by lexi m: “No Kill Shelters” and dogs waiting for years?
There is a very nice “no kill shelter” by me that currently has some ugly and unpopular dogs. One is a 13 year old black lab mix that has been there for 3 years since he was 10 years old. Nobody wants him. And their roster is filling with dogs who look like Heinz 57 mutts (that is no recognizable breed mix) and they are staying for a long time, too. So the turn-over at the shelter is going way down.

I know it would be nice to care for every dog in America for the duration of its life no matter if it is considered unpopular…

But what do you think of that?

Is it wasteful, wonderful or what?

I think it’s good. I don’t know about all no-kill shelters, but the one i olunteer at and donate to is awesome. A lot of their cats and dogs have been there for a while but they’re happy and loved. Sure, other more adoptabl dogs could be there instead. But that woul mean these dogs would be dead.

“While saving the life of one animal will not change the world, it will change the world for that one animal. ”

That’s what I live by. I can’t save them all, but if I can save one, that’ll make me happy.
