Yes, I am looking at that because I have discovered that Newfoundlanders have more common sense about animals than this country does.
I came across this piece of media and it uplifted my spirits considerably. Seems that Newfoundlanders don't like "No Kill". They've figured it out without having to deal with it. Seems that instead of "No Kill" looking good on paper, these folks have a real sense of what it actually does. http://www.vocm.com/qotd.asp
It asks a question: Do you believe animal shelters should adopt the "No Kill" policy for stray pets? And the poll shows:
Of the 1785 responses, only 29% said "Yes", whereas 61% said "NO".
Plus the comments are great too.
No, how can they continue to keep abandoned pets without winding up with more than they can handle. It also isn't fair to the animals to keep them penned indenfinately. The problem is with the owners, not the work of the shelters
Let's be realistic here. I love animals but I do not love them stuck in cages their whole lives. we cannot possibly find homes for all animals.
if no one wants a animal then put it down .keep it for one month to see if anyone wants it .
I am an animal lover with no connection to any of the groups involved in this article.
With the huge numbers of stray and injured animals in this city ,it is unrealistic to adopt a no kill policy.There will never be enough temporary homes for all of these critters and lives in cages can only lead to greater issues in aggression and social isolation with them.
The city should not use tax money to fund the housing and care of animals when so many of our HUMAN citizens are living in deplorable states of poverty and homelessness.
So it is good to know that there is a place where the sun shines but not on the morbid movement under Nathan Winograd.
