  • yes definitly. i dont understand why a perfectly healthy animal should be put down because someone decided that they didnt want it anymore. i think its a really good idea to open centers like this. theres something similar over here i got a leaflet through my door the other day. you can sponser a animal and you get news letters every year etc and also you get a photograph of the animal you have adopted and you can even visit them if you want.
  • We adopted one of our cats from a no kill shelter in NJ about 7 years ago. He had been there for over TWO YEARS after his people got a divorce. I'd hate to see what they did with the kids! We still donate to them.
  • For this to work, people need to use it and adopt a pet, so why are we still sitting here, lets go adopt one :-) I support it 100%.
  • Yes, I was saddened when the local Humane Society office closed. I adopted 2 cats from them.
  • Yes, "no-kill" shelters are great but if pets are not adopted once capacity is filled.. the new pets that try to gain entrance must go to other shelters that do not have the "no-kill" policy. here is my kitty from a "no-kill" my kitty was "sponsored" by a woman until he was adopted out
  • Yes I would.
  • We have often gotten our pets from no kill shelters. I think they are the bets kind. They usually have high standards of care. The pets usually have full shots and good medical. They cost more but they are healthier and usually come with some perks like free visit to vet and coupons to stores for pet items. I haven't noticed many places like them in New York but they wee everywhere in California.
  • i do support this!! I have two dogs now that were going to go to the pound and i knew that they were going to be put to sleep and i just couldnt do it so i kept them and i would gladly take in another one!!!
  • I actually have one of these in my town. =)
  • Yes, we have one where I used to live and we would donate money all the time.
  • Yes, I would. These places are a valuable resource not only for getting unwanted pets off the street and into safty, but for population and desease control since all the animals are fixed and given medical care. They also provide help to people who have pets, but can't afford vet care low cost medical care so fewer animals end up in shelters or put down.
  • I am not sure I would support one honestly. When first trying to get buddy for our pup we found a dog we liked, but the woman who ran her resuce didn't like us or our home. Her rules and requiremtns were over the top,she wanted to make sure someone would be home, fix a very small space between our fence and the neighbors. Eventually she stopped returning phone calls, though we fixed what she wanted fixed and were prepared to give the pup a good loving home.The kids were sad :( However, we chose to adopt our pup from a traditional shelter. We decided to save a dog that otherwise wouldnt have had a second chance. It makes me so crazy to think our dogs could have been put down. They are both such great pets.
  • I definitly would. It breaks my heart thinking about animals being put to sleep.
  • There is one just like this where I used to live. I thought is was a great idea then and still do. When you adopted and animal, it was already spayed or neutered and had all it's shots. It was a wonderful way to control the animal population without killing them.

  • I would and I have. I was a foster mom for great danes for a while for a rescue. Rescues and no kill shelters often take animals from the regular pound if their time is up.
  • I realize finding a good home is a prioity, and I rspect that these shelters/havens commit to a "no kill" philosophy, however sometimes they make placement difficult because they have such high standards. My friend got into a heated discussion during as adoption because the cat rescue was insitant she would keep the new kitty as an inside cat. My friends not going to see or love the cat any less if it can or can't go outside..It may put the animal is a bit more danger, however the quality of its life would be better cats enjoy hunting, IMHO...lol
  • I know someone who would like to start one in our home town. How does one go about doing this? email to: emb78666@hotmail.com Thanks
