Default no kill shelters

is it actually a bad idea to have, and to support a no kill shelter?
i am bad with words but i will try to say this the best that i can.

by having a no kill shelter... the shelter would get crowded with dogs/cats and since they dont kill it will not make any more slots to bring in other dogs and cats.
what i am saying is maybe i pet that hasnt been adopted out in so long should be PTS so there are more slots to give dogs that would be more adoptable a better chance?

Firstly....a no kill shelter will only take dogs that are up to date on shots and they make them pay a fee for drop off......I THINK!!!

So I think they only take certain dogs?

I don't think they are a bad idea. The shelter I go to is a No-Kill Shelter. I think a kill shelter does not adopt out near as many animals due to the fact that there is not that much time from the time they arrive at the shelter to the time they are PTS. At the No-Kill Shelter I go to we are normally full butwe always have room for more. We are about half full right now. We normally adopt out at the same rate we get them but we are also a Dog only shelter. There is a cat only one in the next town which we are joined with. So no I do not think it is a bad idea to have no-kill shelter.

The no kill shelters around here only take surrendered pets with up to date vet care... and the only pets pts are ones with aggression issues/poor health.

IMO it depends, if your going to have a NO-KILL shelter that turns down everyone that puts in an application for a specific dog, then thats not doing that dog any favors, its risking the life of another dog, that could need that spot at the no kill shelter

rabbitsarebetter, i kind of agree with you. what is the point of making an animal suffer in the kennels when it can be finally free of pain and suffering? What is the point of keeping a dog or cat in the shelter when they deem it "unadoptable" when it can be free of the pain its so called owners inflicted on it. why make it suffer in a kennel that when people pass by it throws itself at the door because its the only way it knows that it won't be hurt anymore. Maybe it should permanetly not hurt anymore.Why keep an animal living when it is in physical or emotional pain?

I have mixed feelings about no kill shelters all together. I'm not for putting a dog down in 3 days if it's not adopted. But for those dogs who languish in these cells for too long.....well, that's worse than death IMO. It would be a kindness to put them down if they're not adopted in a reasonable time frame.

Wow, a bunch of us posted at about the same time. So, I just said sort of the same thing that was said.
