Some apparently terrible people have evacuated Palm Beach County ahead of Hurricane Irma and left their animals tied to trees and cars. Local ACOs are rescuing as many as possible but also asking the public to take in any animals they see left outside.
And in an effort to reduce the shelter population in order to make space for more abandoned pets, they are waiving adoption fees as well as the normal foster and adoption application process. I know some readers will hate that but I still believe that the overwhelming majority of those who foster and adopt shelter pets are kind-hearted people who will do right by the animals. And we all know what far too many AC outfits do to reduce shelter population. (Rhymes with pill, hill and shill – actually I’m just going to give it away: it’s kill.) This beats that with a stick.
