I'm shocked, 7 days?? A dog can be lost, stolen, 7 days in not long enough, why so short?

I share dogs for adoption on Twitter and realise dogs are put to sleep after just 7 days. There is also no requirement for them to check for chips. The public need to let law makers know our strength of feeling about this. There should be a need for license to breed while we have more dogs than homes in the UK

Consider if your own animal disappeared, how frantic, how worried, how very beside yourself you'd be. Consider how frightened your animal must be, wondering where you are, and why this is happening. Is 7 days enough? I'm afraid to take my girl more than 50 feet from my house. 7 days is nothing.

7 days is not long enough to find owners of lost pets or new owners. These animals deserve homes.
Give them a chance!

7 days may not be long enough for the owners to find their lost dog. There are also a lot of people looking to give a dog a good home, I was one of them, I now have 2 who are part of my family, please give all dogs a chance of finding a loving family and living happily ever after xx
