Thanks so much! Please understand, this organization means a lot to
me. I don't want to see this no-kill shelter close their doors.

The more the word about them gets out, then they will less likely to

Although the idea of NO-KILL is appealing, it is not realistic. Unless
there is severe triage and you only accept adoptable pets, which still
results in the same event for those you do not accept. So in essence, by
rejection selection, you just aren't accepting responsibility for those
that DO end up dead.

And if you are in danger of closing because of poor triage practices, and
keeping long term care pets, the reality strikes home than in essence,
closing the doors will result in these unfortunates deaths.

Do not take in anything but quickly (and cheaply) adoptable pets so there
is a fast turn over, and your solvency issues will evaporate. It sounds as
if your issues are far greater than anything a quilt raffle will solve. it
seems to be a reality issue instead.

Good luck with that. I'm in support of rescue but in order to make it
happen REALITY and strict selection just has to happen.

The Shelter has been NO KILL since 1905.

Thanks for your opinions but this is not a new shelter. It is one
that is in danger of closing.

If you can donate money, that would be fabulous since that was the
point of the post. To gain publicity for the shelter around the
country instead of just in the small town.
