California animal shelters are killing pregnant dogs and puppies every day. It is completely unnecessary! Rescue groups are trying very hard to save these dogs, but the shelters are quick to kill. It is a cruel practice, and must stop. There is nothing humane about this. Here is just one example of the brutality going on in the California shelters.

Princess had everything worked out for her. Pledge money, and a rescue to take her, the puppies, and Blue, the daddy. The day the volunteer went to pull all the dogs, they were told another rescue stepped in and took Princess and the puppies but left Blue. So Blue was pulled. Later it was discovered that the shelter actually euthanized Princess. We are unsure of the puppies outcome. The shelter will not give any information. This was completely unnecessary. She had rescue.
It is cruel and inhumane to murder pregnant dogs and puppies. These are highly adoptable dogs. This practice needs to change. It is heartless, and we are better than this.
