@Rachel-S The link I posted in the *reply* was for a RESCUE, NOT a shelter, that houses their animals through foster homes. They are not a shelter where their cats are kept in cages for years upon years, until someone chooses them. I hope you read this. This is, of course, tough for them. Fortunately, they won $10k in this competition.
Animals who are accepted into no-kill shelters may be warehoused in cages for months, years, or the rest of their lives, becoming more withdrawn, depressed, or aggressive every day—further reducing their chances of adoption. These animals are suffering!
The good news is that you can help stop the overpopulation crisis that leads to extremely crowded animal shelters. Always have your animal companions spayed or neutered, and never buy an animal from a breeder or pet shop. 🙂
