So, I want to know what everyone's idea is on how to decrease the amount of animals being "dumped" daily at county pounds, to be put to "sleep" in a humane or even inhumane way?
I mean, it's horrible....absolutely insane, and I wanted to know some idea's of yours...I foster and volunteer for a rescue, and maybe some of your ideas can help us to become better at what we do..
So, tell me?
Update: here's a link for those of you who dont want to be left in the dark anymore...its sad, but a real eye opener...Warning-it isnt very nice, so dont watch if you cant handle the truth:
