I was going to post this same thing. I agree what a crock.Wildflugel said:The MSMBC article states: "Animal rights activists said they were outraged by the killings." What a crock, if you have not read about the trial of PETA employees that were killing cats and dogs taken from an animal shelter in North Carolina, under the guise of adopting them out, should read the following link: http://www.petakillsanimals.com/ Before the van they were driving got out of the city limits, the PETA employees would euthanize the animals and throw them in a dumpster behind a grocery store. I love the way animal-rights activists put their own little spin on things.
72 hours? Wow. Is this a common time frame? I hope they check for microchips. All of them. Not just between shoulder blades, but wherever they could reasonably migrate to. (I'm picturing a dog that gets out of the house while someone's dogsitting, and contact info on a tag doesn't match with the person that's looking for the dog... shudder!)Shelter officials vowed to adopt new policies when it reopens Friday, including euthanizing animals after 72 hours at the shelter — as the Humane Society recommends — and improving conditions for the animals, including vaccinating them when they arrive.
