Pets are turned-in to shelters with alarming regularity. The reasons are
almost as numerous as the turn-ins. Here is a very small sample:
Pets are turned-in to shelters with alarming regularity. The reasons are almost as numerous as the turn-ins. Here is a very small sample:
The vast majority of dogs and cats that end up in Atlanta area shelters are lost pets that have strayed from home, not guardian turn-ins. And very, very few of these animals are reunited with their caretakers. If guardians would keep ID tags on their pets, the pets could be quickly reunited with their families.
Last year, over 90,000 dogs and cats were killed in Atlanta area shelters.
This is a number of epidemic proportions. More dogs and cats are killed in
Atlanta shelters than in the entire country of Great Britain, in New York City
or the states of Massachusetts, New Jersey, Connecticut, Oregon or Washington.
In more graphic terms, area animal shelters destroy 20 tons of household pets
To make the problem more concrete, SPOT wishes to present to you two picture series, one of a dog meeting his fate and one of a cat. We expect and even hope you will deeply disturbed.
However, please do not view them if the sight of the
death of a pet will offend you.
EDITORS NOTE: A recent Article came out in the Atlanta Constitution. They addressed changes that are being made at this shelter and some animals are being transferred to the Humane Society.. However, this video and organization is important to remember. The practices described are common throughout shelters in the United States. We must keep the fight going and not forget the fate of these animals. Whether it be Atlanta or elsewhere, this is not uncommon.
