I've never heard of a true shelter not testing for FIV or FeLV. That sounds 
more like an animal control facility.
The Dept of Agriculture wouldn't let us adopt out animals unless we had tested 
them.

I (and others) use the term ``pound'' for all so-called ``shelters'' that are 
not truly No Kill (saving 90%+).

According to her email it wasn't a pound, it was a so-called no-kill shelter.

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: http://www.nokilladvocacycenter.org/

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