I was thinking today. There are so many dogs euthanized in a high - kill shelter about a half an hour away from where I live that I started thinking. Our pup, Sunny, was due to be put to sleep the night we adopted her. This is a bad shelter, as shelters go. They don't do fostering and the kennels are not heated. They don't use internet sites such as Petfinder. This is a government run shelter, I believe. So, I came up with an idea to help animals. They don't do fostering, so I could adopt say a dog, for example. One that is on his last days, likely because he is older, unmannered, unsocialized, etc. Train the dog, socialize him, clean him up, neuter him, etc. and find him a home. Sure, it's a slow process. One animal at a time, but it is an animal that nobody is willing to put any work or time into. I'm thinking about bringing it up to my parents, but I'm not sure how exactly to bring it up. I don't want them to think it's one of those "I JUST CAME UP WITH A GREAT IDEA" things. I want them to take me seriously. What do you guys think of my idea??
