Thanks Buffy..this so sad, PLEASE somebody adopt these beautiful dogs, don't let them be put down. They DON'T deserve to die, they didn't ask to be here in the first place. They shouldn't be treated this way. Praying that somebody will give them a good home, before it is too late. God Bless these dogs!!!!

This isn't right. We need to go after those that breed their animals and make them take responsibility. Over 80% of the cats in the shelters don't make it out alive. This is a disgusting number. Spay and neuter your pets, don't be part of the problem but the solution.

janet f (29)
Tuesday July 24, 2012, 4:47 pm
The people who don't spay/neuter are to blame for this situation. It is gut wrenching to see all the healthy animals that are killed for lack of a home. I have nothing but contempt for those who are responsible for this.

Poor dogs. Why do they need to die? Life is the most precious thing that exists, both for humans and animals. Did anyone see any animal trying to escape of the death? It's the same reaction of humans because they also love life. Nobody has the right to take anyone's life, even though is an animal.

I hope these beautiful dogs are saved. Animals always are the ones that suffer because of the people that are supposed to care and love them.Some people make me so mad.

There is someone trying to get them out at the moment, to take them as foster babies, but till now, she didnīt get anything back. So I will keep you all informed. As soon as I get infos I will let you all know. Thank you for spreading this around, only by spreading this they will have a chance to come out alive. Keep sharing thank you!!!

I love German shepherds best, but my daughter adopted a young Rottweiler, yeah I took to him I just love dogs. But seeing this, surely can someone love those dogs and adopt them. I would if I was in the US. I HOPE SOMEONE WILL HAVE A HEART.

An up date got it from the site:
Update: Malinois Rescue is taking mother and daughter. Several apps on the other one. Should any of them fall through, there is a back up plan to save him/her.

We need confirmation re ??? if a rescue arganisations did foster these dogs.I also read this also on "The National Dog Examiner" ,but the person who posted this never followed through with their confirmation as they had promised.The posted comment was not a definite one and I have extreme concerns re the status of these 3 dogs.I hope they weren't killed

I wrote a letter to Nancy Seevers,

This was her reply:
The Malinoss went to Malinois Rescue, lucky dogs. The third one went to a wonderful couple in Cary. She was older than I thought, but, they did not care.

So they are saved

It's sad, indeed, but in all reality, we can't save all animals in shelters. I wish I could, but I know my own "plate" is full. Elaine, you are misinformed. I have a large GSD, and she was an adoptee. German Shepherds are NOT highly adoptable. Most people who go to shelters want small dogs and the bigger ones usually are the last to go, IF they are not a kill shelter.

Noted - and no, you people over in that country cannot tell me nothing can be done to save these animals or breed specific animals. I just cannot understand this - here in SA we have a parliament we march to if we don't like the way things are run - what is wrong on your side. How do people just walk in and remove your animals and you just let them go without a fight. Sorry, but it is beyond my comprehension. People in our country have a right to voice their opinion and this will never happen in our country.

I am glad they were rescued. It is very sad that people are having a hard time and there animals are the first thing they discard. We can only do so much, i wish i could do more for the animals but i have a full plate my self with 7 strays . I'm doing the best i can.

I'm so sick and disgusted by the amounts that seem to grow each day of "throw away" animals!!! Do these stupid owners not realize how many are in shelters and rescues??? That cute little puppy or kitten is going to grow to become an adult just like children. Their wants and needs get bigger too...and they don't deserve to be treated like unwanted furniture. Makes me so damn angry!!! I have 5 rescues out of my original 9 and will always have room in my heart and home.
