The cold, hard truth is that shelters do euthanize puppies and kittens, regardless of age. I’ve known of situations where day-old puppies were killed. I’ve also seen cases where pregnant mothers were killed.
Yes, it really happens.
Make 2013 the year you make a difference. Pledge to share at least one shelter pet per day, knowing that every single “share” is one more chance that animal has of being saved.
Are you networking shelter animals? If you are, I’d love for you to leave a link to your page below in comments. And if you’re not, I’d love to hear your excuse for turning a blind eye to the horrible truth in our nation’s shelter system.
