All they ever did wrong was being born, and so many of them are being put to death for only that reason.
“Sorry, boy/girl. There’s just too many of you, and no one wants you, so this is the best we can do. Kill you and hope you find peace.”
Of course that isn’t a direct quote, but it may as well be.
One of our Doper/animal friends wrote me tonight, and she’s in the sad position of having to decide if a dog who’s about to die qualifies for rescue.
He doesn’t, and he’ll be put to sleep because of that today.
I apologize. I try not to use the Dope as a platform for my animal welfare advocacy, but this is the first time one of our friends here as written to me about anything like this, and it’s tearing me up just as it is her.
