No-Kill Shelters Don’t Make No Sense To Me

I have been working in animal welfare for over ten years now. In all of that time no-one has been able to explain to me how a no-kill shelter can find homes for aggressive, dangerous, ill and anti-social dogs of which so many end up in dog shelters. Don’t get me wrong, I would love the idea. It’s just that we all have to come down from the clouds and live in the real world eventually.

The good news is, someone is at last willing to explain it to me. I believe he will be putting it in a rap-song:

‘Loose dogs rounded up and housed in city shelters are often euthanized if they go unclaimed for days.

It’s all too much to take for rapper Dan “Hush” Carlisle and TV producer Monica Martino, who co-founded the nonprofit Detroit Dog Rescue in 2011.

The group’s mission is this: Round up all the dogs and find them homes. For the dogs that take a little longer to find a landing spot, Detroit Dog Rescue wants to build a shelter designed to comfortably house them.

Either way, no dog dies.’

When rappers get involved in animal welfare it’s time to get scared.

Maybe some of you readers have familiarity with how a no-kill shelter can find homes for un-rehomable dogs. If you do – please drop me a line.
