I have always agreed with their no kill policy. I guess it's the way i look at things. The mangy old dog would have the same chance as the pretty little kitten. It's to bad it has come to this. I don't live in the Stephenville area nor know the caretakers of this SPCA. I have dropped in a few times over the years and made a few donations. It's not a pleasant place to visit and i suspect to even work there could be hazardous to your health. They do the best they can with what they get in donations. I have neighbors that have had 20 cats in their home at one time and the reason given to me for having them was that we have no animal bylaws in the community so they can have as many as they want. It's the mentallity like that which causes situations such as the one were seeing in the Bay St.Georges Animal Shelter right now. Maybe it's time to start a registry of all pets in NL and proof by anyone who owns one that they can provide and care for it.
Gwen Samms may or not be fit to look after them but we have many people here in NL and even my own community who also fit that description.
