No-kill Shelters, an Ongoing Debate

A shelter in San Antonio, Texas took in 1,004 cats and dogs. 925 were euthanized within a week. The shelter is hoping to turn it's facility into a "no-kill" shelter by 2012. This means all animals considered healthy or treatable will be taken in.

However, some people argue that no-kill shelters can be more of a problem rather than a solution. Taking in any and all animals can cause crowding resulting in health problems for the animals.

The reality is, there are 8 million homeless animals in the United States alone. Many people are searching for an answer to this difficult problem.
