Did you know that no kill shelters are places where “enslaved” pets are kept alive for our pleasure? Me neither but that’s what one reader wrote in a letter to a MA newspaper:
Folks, put yourself in their position. Wouldn’t you rather be dead?
God but I hope I don’t get this guy on my insurance company “death panel”.
Another reader wrote a letter in response:
No-kill shelters aren’t there to just keep any old animal around to pawn off on some unsuspecting soul who thinks they want a new pet. They take much time and effort to work with the animals and the adopters to ensure that the animal will go on to live a long and healthy life with their new forever home.
OK, whew. For a second there I thought…
