Squish had a rescue on its way to save him and instead of waiting...the shelter killed him.

I was a worker in a shelter like those you talk about. As a rescue coordinator I had a rescue on the way for a terrified, abused Dane. The shelter decided to euthanise him anyway. By sheer physical force I removed him from the euthanasia room, was able to get a clerk to sign him out under another rescue with the promise of me supporting him totally and I handed in my notice and quit that day. He gave me 7 amazing more years and I never regret it. Thank you for your work.

Reading these comments … and just hearing “killed” states exactly what happens when mindless, ignorant humans take “murder” into their own hands. Where are the Animal Police for these animals ? Who speaks up? Why is the human life more precious and worth saving than an Animals’ life??? To me they are equal. When my animals die .. or I have to help them .. I say they “left” .. or I “helped them to leave” … these dogs don’t have that choice .. it is decided FOR them. Totally disgusted in the human race, that’s why I try to speak FOR the animals .. I am their VOICE and try and help with my radio segment. Thank you Mark and everyone concerned for being their voice .. ‘’many voices are louder than one." Together we will stop this horrific act towards our spiritual soul mates. God Bless you all. Denise James .. (Let’s Talk Animals with Denise James)

We are but foot soldiers in this war. As in all wars there are those that immerge and show true leadership. Mark Barone and Marina Dervon are two such warriors.
They have committed like few others to end the senseless murder of millions of companion animals in the U.S. and around the world. Just as in all wars, you have to start the fight in one place and they chose the United States. The battle cry “Make the United States the First True No-Kill Nation in the World”.
Let these 16 nightlights illuminate the way for many people wishing to join in this monumental endeavor. The hope, joy, sadness, and fear is seen on the faces of each and every dog in this exhibit. That emotion is tranferred onto the nightlights and takes my breath every time I look at one of them.
I have bought 12 of the 16 to date and will be purchasing the remaining 4 in the next week. Join the war and become a part of the solution and don’t remain part of the problem.

I am furious after reading this…wtf is wrong with people?!!! The employees responsible for this despicable act should be fired. Immediately…..and never again to be employed in any position of Animal Welfare.

Can someone tell me why,.. or who,.. hires these people to care for animals when, in fact, they obviously don’t care about animals! It is an outrage and totally unacceptable.
