What are we going to do about it?

I came across this video (it references Australia, but the video was taken in the U.S.). It is extremely hard to watch and depicts how dogs and cats are routinely killed at U.S. shelters (and this is more humane than most.) It also shows the pain of daily life as a euth. technician and reminds us- it is not their fault- its OURs.

The only thing that makes looking at the remains of the dogs in this video seem a little tiny bit more humane is that these animals finally no longer can feel pain. Thank goodness they are no longer hungry or beaten by irresponsible owners. It is disgraceful that this is really the best we can do by the animals we claim to love and care for.

What are we going to do about it?

See the article & video about Overpopulation.

Spay and Neuter.
Ban puppy mills and back yard breeders.
Rescue from a shelter.
Love your dog with all your heart.


  1. I watched this video yesterday on This One Wild Life's blog. I am still affected by it. As others have said, it is one thing to know this happens, and another to see something like this.

    Thank you for sharing it. The more people we reach, the better.

  2. That was really painful to watch.

    It's one thing to know the numbers and know that dogs and cats are being euthanized so frequently. It's such a different thing altogether to see a personal account of it. To see dogs and cats (kittens!) be killed. I do not envy that woman and man their jobs.
