This kind of upset me. I was browsing CL and found this. This shelter (I'm not sure if this is a shelter's ad, but it's for promoting adoption), is using Target's accidental euthanasia as a 'selling' point for people to adopt dogs. The title is "Adopt a Rescue Dog in Honor of Target"

Adopt a Rescue dog in honor of TARGET

I don't know why this bothers me, but it does. :/

Since it was flagged, this is what the ad said.

I was deeply saddened today with the news of Target, the local Afghanistan War Hero dog that was accidentally euthanized yesterday at a local animal control shelter. Please consider adopting a rescue dog in memory of this wonderful courageous dog who touched so many lives. Little Dude, the first picture shown here is a german shepherd mix, just like Target. Wont you consider giving him a chance? If you would like to meet Little Dude or any of our wonderful rescue dogs and cats, please reply to this post and one of our dedicated volunteers will get back to you shortly

That is not how you are supposed to get people to adopt.
