Let me explain.
** Should routine euthanasia of surplus pets by animal shelters be the social norm?
** Should we be operating animal shelters in this country where healthy and treatable dogs and cats are not euthanized for time and space considerations?
** Is there a difference between “no kill” and “No-Kill”?
Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States, has written an excellent and perceptive blog, “Setting Aside Semantics: Not Killing Pets Must Be Our Goal.” In it, Wayne presents the best explanation I’ve seen yet about what “no kill” and “No-Kill” means, and why he feels we ALL have to become involved in this crusade to make it work.
It doesn’t matter if you have pets or even care about animals. This is going to affect you (maybe it already has) in some very important way, whether you like it or not. Read what Wayne has to say. Then give it some thought.
