Not all humane societies are that bad and some will take in less than perfect 
cats but you really have to look and get to know the people in the humane 
society.  See how they've handled situations before and if they take in older 
or FeLV or FIV cats when they run across them.  There are several ladies in my 
humane society that I would not have a problem letting my cats go to because 
they're awesome and as picky as I am about finding the right homes for them.  
I'm pretty lucky with my humane society.  In general they're great folks and 
really really love the animals.  I've worked with them for eight years so I 
know them all well.

I WOULDNOT GO TO HUMANE SOCIETY, ESPEIALLY IF ANY OF MY CATS ARE FELV OR FIV 
POSITIVE.  THEY WOULD PUT  THEM TO SLEEP WITHOUT EVEN TRYING TO FIND A HOME 
WILLING TO TAKE THEM.
