I understand that sometimes to be kind, one must be cruel. However, the cruelty of having to kill domestic animals that were once PETS is just as bad as people who continue to get abortions instead of simply getting sterilized. Now, this is another tempest in the teapot: I SUPPORT a woman's Right to Choose, but I do NOT support her decisions to make the same mistakes over and over. It's the same with animal shelters. I agree that there should be places for animals to go when during a transition period to a NEW HOME when that is absolutely NECESSARY! I do NOT support the idea that PETS are "disposable".
And, yes, I tend to be verbose. However, on certain subjects, I can't help it. Being the animal lover that I am, who has done MANY rescues ON MY OWN, with MY OWN resources, THIS is ONE of those few subjects that get me into that verbosity mode.
EDIT: BTW - I have two four-year old cats. BOTH of which are rescues.
EDIT #2: Corrected the use of a term in the wrong manner.
