I get the feeling members here don’t understand the importance of humane legislation. I guess the reason I see the need is because Im in TNR and Rescue. Until you encounter a bad shelter, you'll never appreciate how much we need ground rules because Shelter Directors can be elusive about funds and have high kill rates that they wont publish. (Like the Houston HASPCA) And the problem I’m dealing with is a shelter can ignore sick cats and let them die in their care. Even though they have to money for a full time vet and vet techs. It rips your heart out when organizations don’t cooperate.
Our pound here is still allowing people to bring in ferals and they are euthanized. The Humane Society Tucson won’t take ferals anymore. They get grants for TNR groups to spay/neuter. But the HS on the border will not accept pit bull dogs anymore. Its frustrating because each HS is autonomous. We need legal action to protect animals to make this a No Kill nation.
