Rescuing from a rescue?
I once went to one of the local private "no-kill" shelters here in town, and I am still in total shock. It was horrible. Large dogs were crammed two or three in each small outdoor kennel. The medium-to-small dogs were housed in crates. There were sheds full of crates, stacked one on top of the other. Most of the crates were old, rusty and in bad shape. The owner of the facility explained to me that all the dogs were let out in a large, fenced area three times a day: once in the morning for 20 minutes, at noon for an hour, and once in the evening for 20 minutes. That's it. All the rest of the time, they're living in places where they barely have room to lay down. Just the other day, one of my coworkers went to look for a dog and came back horrified. From what she told me, conditions haven't changed.
Is this cruelty? Granted, the "rescuer" feeds them, gets them vet care, etc., but I think it's horrible to keep them confined like that. From what I've seen on Petfinder, some of those dogs have been there for years. Is there anything I can do, like report animal cruelty?
