When perusing Facebook, how often do you see people decrying “kill shelters”? Well-meaning folks who are simply ignorant of shelter designations are unwittingly doing animals everywhere a huge disservice, and at the same time, infuriating people who DO understand the differences and who work hard every single day to change inaccurate perceptions. Municipal shelters, private shelters, municipal partnerships, open intake and limited intake – we have all these in Mobile and Baldwin counties. And to compare them with one another, or call one “bad” and one “good” is no different than trying to compare any other two completely disparate things. This video is somewhat long but definitely worth watching. We are all responsible for homeless, neglected and abused animals, and we are all able to educate ourselves and others to make a lasting difference wherever we live.
