Here's the thing. If your shelter cannot afford the staff, the equipment, or the space for all the cats and animals besides, that need some help, then
guess what? The damned place should not exist. If all they are going to do, is kill cats which express behavioural problems, rather than sitting with
them, normalising them to the presence of strangers, and gaining their trust, like any mook who has even SEEN a cat would be able to do with an arm up
their back, then the shelter is not worth a God damn.
Furthermore, scanning the chip of a dead animal is a bit bloody late, if you ask me. The lil fluffball should have been scanned when he showed up at
the place, not after being shot full of poison and left to die.
But theres one more thing... Pet owners, specifically cats, but any roaming pet, including dogs... Get your animal in a collar with your phone number
on it. Make them readily identifiable to anyone in your neighborhood as your pet. How terrible must the family that took the poor fellow to the ARL,
feel about what happened? They probably thought that if they took him there, he would be safe, someone would come for him, that if he was chipped,
they would find his owners and return him to them, safe and sound and pleased to see his owners again.
But instead? They delivered the cat into the arms of people who would murder him for the sake of convenience.
Absolutely disgusting. Shelters that kill animals in ANY scenario other than to cease their physical pain in the event of catastrophic injury, should
be closed down, their founders arrested for animal abuse. Its better to let the poor buggers fend for themselves, than send any animal to such a
place, with the risk that they might be killed for no reason!
