If we allow the compassionate death of ill animals is one thing but to do so when so much could be done is wrong take your paper to a hole other level and talk about policies that result in family's having to turn in well rounded pets or working dogs as well as city policies that result in rental owners not allowing pets of any kind
Breed Specific legislation, laws pertaining to rental property owners insurance policies for pets most surprisingly aren't breed specific but based on size of pets also double standard of protective service dogs police are permitted but if your dog gets any bit training at all the police can have it euthanized without cause this isn't all city so check with your local department
works fine. insert needle into arm of person who thinks they have the right to terminate life, allow them to press plunger all the way down before they find it is hooked up to their arm, not the pet that just needed a few more hours/days to find a home
Have you actually talked to a shelter or just volunteered for a day these decisions are not made lightly and sometimes is the best option other than releasing them to run free in packs and eat babies from your back yard in witch we would have to euthanize them any way this sounds like a great project for you as you have the right heart but fail to understand the full scope
if an animal has little to no hope finding a good home for whatever reason is probably better not existing.... why cause a living creature to live a life of nothingness?
there is only so much room in a shelter... it can be difficult to find homes for animals.. with only limited funding a shelter can't afford to keep all those animals until they find a home.
