ONE DAY we hope to not see these images, ONE DAY we hope to not have to work all day to help the abandoned, abused and left to die. ONE DAY we hope that people get it and have their pets fixed. ONE DAY we hope shelters are only used to hold pets for a day if lost to be reunited with their owners because they were microchipped or tattooed.
These two sweet loving dogs were two I had to leave behind on my latest trip visiting a shelter. On their last few weeks before likely euthanasia. This is the reality of not fixing animals. The sadness and reality of living the last 3 months of your life in these small cages. Getting out if you’re lucky once a day in solitaire. Watching possible families pass your cage day after day to find a cuter dog, easier dog, more acceptable purebred. Just wanting that chance to show how good he/she can be once loved by the right people.
Until we can have our “ONE DAY” please adopt from rescues and shelters. Please have your pet fixed and either microchipped and/or tattoo. Just because a dog/cat is in a shelter doesn’t mean it was their fault. Most, really ALL in my 15 yrs. of experience in animal rescue, are there because of human fault, or to put if politically correct, human situations.

Moderncat Fall Issue 2015
Pound Rescue is not the only one suggesting adopting two cats (or more!). Kittens we will only adopt out in pairs. See the article below from Modern Cat Fall-Winter 2015/16.
Adopting Pure Breds
Pound Rescue does not agree to not adopt these purebreds from a rescue group. It is not their fault to be bred into cripples and to then be euthanized, they should not be punished for it but have the chance live a life as good as possible for them. Those who adopt from a rescue group should be motivated by compassion, not looks. If not then who could become ambassadors for these poor dogs, in the dog park, in their neighbourhood, to speak out against such breeding. Who would it be?
A Dog Crate Is a Cage Is a Prison
What if, at your local pet-supply store, you could purchase a dog-training tool that would make your dog weaker, klutzier, and less intelligent? And what if this tool increased your dog’s frustration and fearfulness about the world and made him or her less likely to bond with you? Would you buy it? Of course not! Yet, millions of these “tools” are sold every year to unsuspecting American dog lovers who want the absolute best for their dogs. The tool is a “crate,” which is just a euphemism for a cage. In fact, dog crates are substantially smaller than the cages that are used to house dogs in laboratories.
