No Kill Shelters

There are many good people who run no kill shelters and mean well for the animal but sadly these shelters are filled to the max and are short staffed . Dogs have to be in kennels for days, months and sometimes years and the competition is fierce.

Dogs sit and are bewildered as to why they are alone and not part of a family they once knew. Everything is strange they are not familiar with the people or being in a cage or kennel. Many times they get kennel cough or parvo virus and if they are lucky enough to find an adopter they may not be screened well enough for that animals specific needs and be returned or given away again.

Most shelters are not going to do home checks and follow up to see if everything is going well with the new dog or cat. So the point is know one knows your dog or cat like you and when you choose to bring a new dog or cat into your life it should have been a life time commitment.
