    Has anyone ever seen this site? I read about it in my Dog Fancy magazine and stupid me just HAD to check it out. It has a list of all the dogs with death dates and how much time they have left. In some ways I think it's a really sad site but on the other hand when I want a dog in the future I'll probably look on here first. You can even search for dogs in your area on death row kinda like petfinder except all these ones are gonna die :(

    Wow, I bookmarked to add a link to my web page.

    It's sad, but good too.

    I'm glad it's there, I always expected when I got my dos I would go to a shelter and ask who's time is almost up and choose from them if they suited my life. I wish more shelters participated though, I'm sure there are more kill shelters in my area than what I found there.

    I think I like the idea behind that website, 'cuz I know some shelters keep it hidden a little, their euth dates. But here, the pressure is on, and I think it hits people a little harder. I kinda wish more shelters would list on this website. It might help out quite a lot of dogs.
