Because of the perception of the public about "No Kill" shelters, this case has a lot to offer. These women were hoarding, trying to get help from a "No Kill" shelter, and were turned away. They were sleeping in their car with 80 cats and all the while, "No Kill" shelters were turning them away. They were asking for help and were rejected by "No Kill". Just another way that "No Kill" is harming animals and causing animals to suffer and die.
BENNINGTON, Vt., July 14 (UPI) -- Two New York sisters pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges for keeping more than 80 cats, 13 of which had to be euthanized, in two cars.
All the cats were in need of medical care and were sent to a Bennington animal hospital and shelter where some had to be euthanized, authorities said.
New York police say they found and seized 50 more cats from Ryan's home in Troy.
The two women were looking for no-kill shelters for the cats, Ryan told the Banner.
Turning away animals because a "No Kill" shelter is full creates these situations. Condemning open door shelters, the mainstay of "No Kill", creates these situations. Had these women had a good perception of their local open door shelter, then these cats would not have had to suffer. "NO KILL" KILLS!!
