There are many times in which owners walk into shelters with animals which they (claimed) to have loved and decided to give them up to animal shelters. The first question which the shelter manager asks is why are you giving up your pet? Some of the answers received will shock you and many times makes you quite angry and upset. Some owners will say that they never knew that the cute puppy they loved would have gotten that big! What the hell would you think if you bought a puppy rottweiler? Some give excuses that they re moving to a different state or place which does not allow pets. That's just disgusting, you have a pet and that pet is apart of your family. If you are moving you should move to a place where your pet can also live too.
Shelters face tremendous burden when it comes to taking care of full healthy animals much less those which are critically ill. Those which are ill and suffering will be put down, and any times the process is not simply ABC. Dogs are lead away on leash thinking they are actually going for a walk and are quite enthused as they willingly spring to play wagging their tails and making happy barks. Then when they reach the vet and enter the room of sleep they smell the passing of many sorrowful souls and a tonne of fear and sadness enters the animal. The animal is held down and then the needle is administered into the vein of the animal. Then the vets watch as the life seeps away and the animal gasp and kicks as its last breath is snuffed away. Its a tearful situation, but it happens. You can help out these poor animals by simply rescuing any one of these dogs.
