That's great news. I can tell you, it's heartbreaking to work at a city shelter that takes in that many in 2 months and adopts out only half. It's heartbreaking to look around a room of 20 cages and realize that half will not be adopted and euthanized. I look at Bon Nuit, my cute adorable little tuxedo here and realize that she just plain likes to hiss an objection - she is not mean at all but try and tell that to the parents of a child; or Pekoe that will give a "don't put me back in there" nip but would not do that in a home setting. I feel the need to be there just to justify their existence sometimes!
