I hear you! I feel the same way whenever I go anywhere there are crying cats& dogs! So you know what ? I volunteered at a shelter! I also adopted 4 dogs that were set to be put down. So many people feel bad about this or that . Wouldn't be great if we could DO something about it rather than just feeling sad ? If you can't adopt, volunteer. If you can't volunteer, donate at least $5.00 to your local pound . If this a stretch for you, then don't bother feeling sad! I guess you can tell I'm passionate about our animals!
