This is probably one of the most irresponsible and failed attempts at journalism I have ever seen. Not only is this damaging to the animals in the shelter system, but to actually say in print that animals are better off euthanized is just disgusting to me! He states that most animals in shelters are in fact not pets, nonsense! He claims that feral animals are un-adoptable, not so! they simply need patients, time and training. I fear that the public will be turned off shelter animals because they are reading the babblings of an idiot who so obviously has zero experience with animals, and shelters as well. If we the guardians, the owners, the pet parents of these animals have taken it upon ourselves to domesticate and make animals dependant on us, then we should step up that responsibility and not simply dump it on a shelter or rescues doorstep when we have “lifestyle changes” or get “too busy” or decide that we “have too many pets”.
Like it or not “we” are the reason these animals suffer, and to suggest that gassing, or injecting death into a living thing is our call, or our right is the most disturbing mindset I have ever been exposed to yet! So Mr. Shoaf, as I stated in your comments section, and will repeat here, please quit your day job, it isn’t your forte! You may want to try applying for “cage liner” at a pet store, at least that way you can see first hand where your type of diatribe ends up!
Please feel free to leave this (AHEM!) wanna be your thoughts!
