Will Pets at Shelters Affected by Sandy Be Kept Alive So Their Owners Can Find Them?
November 1, 2012
Has killing been suspended at the animal shelters in areas affected by Hurricane Sandy? Killing healthy/treatable shelter pets under any circumstances is both violent and unnecessary. But with evacuations, mass power outages and limited transportation over a wide area impacted by the storm, holding a stray pet for an arbitrary number of hours before killing seems like an added cruelty.
If you have any information on killing moratoriums in effect at any shelters in the path of Sandy, please share.
