If you come home from work and find your pet is missing, how do you react upon learning that animal control has picked up your lost pet?
A. Oh thank god! She’ll be safe tonight and I’ll go pick her up in the morning. I think I’ll take a bag of treats in with me for the shelter pets and pastries for the staff to thank them for taking care of my pet in this crisis.
B. Oh god no – not that! Anything but the local safe haven for pets!
If you answered A, you are lucky to have a good shelter in your community. Bring extra treats.
If you answered B, your community does not have a shelter. But you can change that.
