Shelter workers have been unfairly vilified for doing the dirty work that breeders, buyers, and indifferent pet owners create for them.
I peered over the staircase into the basement and noticed a cat carrier. As soon as I saw it, I knew he was in there, which was confirmed when he meowed in response.
It's not that I don't love animals -- I do. I just think the resources spent on animals that will never be adopted could be better used elsewhere.
I was a die-hard cat person growing up. That is, until my early 30s, when I adopted a dog with a bunch of pretty major issues -- and I Iearned to love her anyway.
