One of the things that I find most disturbing about animal welfare is the reluctance of volunteers, donors, staff, and the general public to say something when they see something wrong. Shelter directors will also "circle the wagons" to protect their colleagues.
A reluctance to speak up about needless shelter killing probably stems from a fear of confrontation, or backlash, or who might "unfriend" you. I'm going to give you a really simple way to decide when to say something.
You don't need to be loyal to a shelter, or a rescue, or a Facebook friend. Be loyal to the animals. Give credit where credit is due, but don't be silent when you see something wrong. If an animal has been needlessly killed, or is in harm's way, say something. They are depending on you.
Thank you to all of you who are speaking out. You are saving lives.
