Anyone having this problem?

Post by Chris Willia » Thu, 23 Nov 2000 04:00:00



  Our city has a pretty good reputation for animal care, enhanced by our
no-kill shelter soon to open.  The result is people from surrounding
communities bring their unwanted dogs here and dump them on the streets.
It's increasingly hard to keep up.
  BTW, some of these are sweet, well-socialized dogs.  Guess that
someone took  the time to bring them here shows a little more concern
than some have.

Thats the downfall of a no kill shelter.  It's a nice idea, but in reality no
kill shelters fill up pretty fast and can no longer take in dogs because they
are keeping some dogs alive who are not adoptable.

It happens with people too as I'm sure you know - offer a good welfare
system and supportive services and people move in from all over to take
advantage of them.
Perhaps what we need is a national standard no kill shelter set up - whip
one up for us will ya? ;-D
