"No-Kill" Versus "Kill" Shelters for Dogs
Which ones have the people who really care about animals?
Mother Theresa once famously said that she would happily participate in a peace rally but would not attend an anti-war rally. Why not? She no doubt understood intuitively that you’re much more likely to effect the change you seek by promoting what you want rather than by railing against what you don’t want.
What does this have to do with dogs? It’s about the use of the term “no-kill shelter.” It automatically implies that there are also “kill shelters” out there, manned by people who are okay with getting rid of unwanted dogs and other animals by ending their lives.
