  1. I remember this heartbreaking story from the examiner.
    It is a brilliant memorial to all the cats and dogs that are murdered in shelters.
    It should also have gone nationwide on TV especially now when so many POS owners are dumping their animals before going on vacation.

  2. Yes, a heartbreaking story…..I just cannot understand why the person who became so “close” to Shadow couldn’t have, if not able to adopt him herself, contact social media, or done SOMETHING to save his life. I know shelter employees can’t adopt EVERY animal or find homes for every animal…..but one with whom you bond so deeply should have received special treatment, in my opinion.

    1. They did try everywhere for a rescue. I remember speaking with the shelter manager. I’m sure she bonds with many animals, she just took the time to write about it. I come across many stories like these, from volunteers and employees. sometimes you just have to choose which ones you can save. it’s always a Sophie’s Choice…
