It's even worse than that:   And I've heard that at
a local plant, the animals weren't even all dead.   The tough guy who told
me that was crying, so I believe him.

Go Get a Life---Go Get a Shelter Animal!

If you can't adopt, then foster "bottle baby" shelter animal, to save their
life.  Contact your local pound for information.

If you can't bottle feed, foster an older animal, to save their life, and
to free up cage space.

Ask your local animal pound to start saving over 90% of their intake by
implementing the No Kill Equation:<>

Here's the current growing list of true No Kill communities:
