Our pets are living, breathing, loving beings. With a heart that beats. They should not be disposed of in a shelter to be put to death only because some one bought them on a whim and didn't think out the whole process of being responsible for another life for years to come.
Before breeding more pet quality animals for pure profit we need to adopt from shelters and rescue from abuse situations. no one NEEDS a puppy or a kitten. Almost all age pets are adoptable. The ones that aren't adoptable need to have a sanctuary for. I believe this can be achieved when the shelters no longer kill.
