Re: North Carolina euthanasia law debate
"It would ( hopefully, will) be a great step forward, for sure. <u>But euthanizing could become unnecessary if people would stop breeding dogs, would neuter their animals, and would adopt homeless pets from shelters instead of puppies from breeders or pet shops.</u> Obviously that is an ideal and would require a massive paradigm shift! But it's something to work toward in the long term, while still pushing for actions to improve the existing circumstances in the short term as well--which passing a good bill here would certainly do. "
Personally, I like the German Shepherd Dog breed. I will not leave it to puppy mills and back yard breeders to sustain the breed. So far, none of my pups have landed in a shelter or rescue. I keep track of them. Someday, there may be too many of them out there for me to follow each one as I currently am, but I hope that with all the paperwork and interviews that I do with each puppy owner, I have impressed on them that if they need to rehome the dog, they can contact me.
If everyone spays or neuters their dogs, than within a decade dogs will be rare. Within two, they will be extinct. That IS what PITA wants. There is indeed no reason to euthanize dogs in shelters if there are no dogs.
