Ours is not a ‘no-kill’ shelter

Early last week, a woman stood in the lobby, asking us to take her cat. She was moving, in financial distress, and couldn’t care for her cat anymore. It was a story we hear almost every day. The faces and circumstances change, but the end results are usually the same: more homeless pets waiting in kennels. She was visibly shaken as she filled out the paperwork. She seemed torn by her decision. But then she smiled, pulled herself together and stood a little taller. “At least I know he will be safe here, and you guys will find him a good home. I couldn’t bear to leave him if you weren’t a no-kill shelter.”
