We share that feeling. That is the only reason I donate training time and occasionally foster, to help a few special dogs get a chance.

Dogs are huge passion of mine. There are more ethical/good shelters than unethical/profiters. I'm not against someone buying a dog from a shelter. I am against dog buying decisions based souly on emotion and politically correct awareness as huge portion of those purchases fail. Most dog purchases are a commitment of 10+ years of ones life. Those decisions should be carefully researched. The reason there is a Shelter Industry is the very fact we live in a Throw it Away society.
