I don't know how to start this post. It may seem jumbled, but I'm desperate to speak for all these poor creatures who can't stand up for themselves. They are all at the mercy of a "shelter" that DOES NOT believe NO KILL is even feasible so they continue to KILL! On whose authority do they justify these deaths? This archaic method of animal control is inexcusable.....ALL THE ANIMALS AT LONGVIEW TX HIGH-KILL SHELTER WANT TO LIVE! ALL OF THEM!
The collage below was made and posted Friday night, Aug 10th of animals in the URGENT album at Longview whose "time was up". Tomorrow when the shelter officially reopens, I will recheck all their statuses to see who made it out alive from this picture. Here's the BEFORE ....(I can tell you right now though that Snow, Sally, Liz and Raquel were all DEAD by Saturday....)
I will update the status of the animals in the above collage by Wednesday evening.
16 BLACK BEAUTIES OF LONGVIEW
Following are 3 picture collages of 16 of the 18 black animals currently in the URGENT album at Longview. Nine of these animals are black lab mix. Statistics show black animals have a much harder time getting adopted or even rescued out of shelters. And now that Longview has also recently cancelled long-term fostering, cancelled free adoptions to military and raised the adoption fees of cats from $50 to $75, the black animals' chances of living are even slimmer....
This is a STUPID statistic, but it's true. Several people have been posting the past few days actually pleading and begging Longview to do a "special sale" or even give these black animals away FREE all this next week to prospective adopters. I'm posting the 16 black animals photos here in 3 separate collages. One of the shelter's most infamous excuses is, "I can't give these animals out to just anyone." Yep, shelter folks, we GET that and we agree....BUT DEAD IS DEAD! Keeping these animals, denying offers to foster, keeping them just to end up KILLING THEM is SICK!!!
IF the interim director of Longview is seriously committed to saving these animals lives, she will do ANYTHING to save these animals lives. Because the same old tired and archaic excuses for killing are NOT ACCEPTABLE!
Look at their beautiful faces and memorize their names! ALL THE ANIMALS AT LONGVIEW DESERVE TO LIVE! EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE PERFECTLY HEALTHY ADOPTABLE ANIMALS!
