>Hi Christopher.  I decided to reply to the group as well because I think that you ask a great question and I'm sure there are others out there who want to know how they can help as well.  First of all, attending a seminar like the one below is the perfect forum to ask these questions, that's why they have them.  I would encourage everyone to attend if at all possible.

>How can you help?  My suggestion would be to contact your local shelter and become a volunteer.  There are many other ways that you can help besides adopting or fostering a dog/cat.  You can walk dogs, spend time with the animals, clean kennels, fundraise, work their clinics, etc.  There are also many animal welfare groups who need volunteers as well (ahem, the Coalition to Unchain Dogs) for example.  We need help transporting dogs to spay/neuter appointments and of course building fences.  Other groups need volunteers to help with adoption events or help with fundraising.

>Ok.  I've been thinking for the past few days.  I've been on facebook several times and often notice posts and pages, where animal and dog lovers are concern about the safety and issues of what's going on with animals in shelters.  Before resently, I had no idea that animals were being executed when shelters are over crowed or for whatever else reasons.  I've read several post, where people mentioned how some animals have only a few days or even hours to be rescue;  and as I've said earlier, I didn't know they were reffering to "Rescue," as being that the animals would be kill if some one didn't adopt them.  After I've read more and more stories of how some of these animals do get put away, which also made me feel bad and sad sometimes, I wonder what can I do?  I live where I cannot have any dogs right now and even though many other people are doing a lot and probably and obviously have adopted dogs, and othere animals, I thought, what if
