NO KILL SHELTERS ARE POSSIBLE NOW.. AND INEVITABLE
All animals, who turn up in shelters being abandoned or lost, WANT to live... their lives are precious and they DESERVE to live..
An animal's life is not a disposable commodity, to be extinguished at the whims and fancies of an individual or a few people at the Shelter..
There is a moral responsibility here, which is being overlooked, in order to keep up with the "rules" of the system of governance... and there is the blind complacency that as long the "rules" are obeyed and archaic pro-killing excuses are in place, all is well... in spite of the fact that Governing bodies (who should be looking at the humane issues with compassion and fairness) and the Shelter people, who mercilessly pick and kill the sad, helpless animals at the shelter in the name of "protecting" the "society", have lost touch with their conscience a long, long time ago...
An Animal shelter deals with live animals on a daily basis, and this is a humane and public responsibility in a civilized society... the Shelter Director and workforce must be selected carefully of people with the highest ethics and love for animals.. they will have a public- friendly and adoption- friendly attitude and animals are adopted out to loving people with barest minimum of formalities ..killing of helpless beings can never be an option in a civilized society.. ever ..
All shelter activities must be transparently reflected in a website dedicated to the shelter, and statistics and amount of space available for animals updated in real time for public information.. volunteers must be granted access at all times to help the shelter pets..
Police Officers should be trained in how to handle a dog instead of shooting down family pets.
Ban BSL.. not worth a thought...
No- kill Shelters in the city is something that every citizen should be rightly proud of, as it shows that the law-makers and people here are morally sensitive and awake... all cities, counties and states can network with each other to see how much more can be done for the welfare of these helpless, innocent and loving beings...
Please let us all together help make this a better place for all our companion friends so that they can live long and happy lives..
