Owning Animals is a Privilege
I like dogs. This is obvious.
I like that people have dogs, and I like that there are a myriad of rescue options for those interested. I do not believe that people or companies have any inherent right to own them. After reading about the mass killing of sled dogs in Canada, I really wish that you had to get approvals before you could get a dog.
My Twitter friend Starangel has addressed this particular case in far more detail than I care to go into, but seriously, this company saw no other option but killing? I can’t imagine that humane society type organizations and rescues wouldn’t have gone to great lengths to take dogs that had become a financial burden and find homes for them.
So what this case comes down to is greed, laziness and callous disregard.
