So there's more dead dogs at the Dartmouth Shelter Metro SPCA. It's so interesting. The only one I've been able to confirm for sure - is this first dog - who is the mother of the puppiesthat were seized way, way back in February. You remember that? The seizure of all those cats, dogs, and puppies that happened down in Cape Breton?
It seems that there are STILL dogs hidden away in cages in the back of the Metro SPCA - and this week - they killed at least one - and maybe 3 of them. And one has to ask - why? Why did it take them this long to kill them, why are they killing them now?
This is perhaps the 2nd dog that was killed.
This is perhaps the 3rd dog that was killed.
So why were these dogs killed mere days before the much lauded Adoptathon that is happening on July 12th?
Or maybe - the bigger question is - why were these dogs killed mere days before the next NS SPCA Board of Directors meeting to be held on July 14th, 2008. That is a date that I personally am wondering about.
Another thing is - over on the Kijiji discussion board there is a thread that is now 59 pages long about Celtic Pets in Cape Breton - and when the last killing of the dogs happened - there was much criticising of why the shelter staff and volunteers weren't asking up front about the killing - so today I DID ask the posters who say they are at the shelter every day - and the silence is deadening. They aren't posting a thing about the dead dogs and whether anything has happened - all they've posted is
"I'm sure the ones that were PTS were for legitimate reasons, or from what I know. They are better off where they are now. I'm sure of that. All the bones they could possibly want hundreds stuffys to tear apart."
Compared to being in a cage for at least the last 5 months - I'll second that.
