Give the new group a chance. Sometimes new energy can bring positive benefits. What is the harm for them in trying to kill fewer animals? If they really care about them as much as they say, they will do everything in their powers to prevent the extending periods of caging - or the overcrowding - that is a concern.

I too have to agree with your remarks… and the choice of the SPCA. There comes a time when creatures with no quality of life and no reason to be alive to be put down. Why should they have to linger on and suffer? There is a time for all creatures to die. If they are no longer of any use to the people they belong to. OMG!! Maybe it’s time to start checking out some of the nursing homes in the city and take care of some of them old folks that are doing nothing more than taking up space. Using up our healthcare resources...Why do they have to linger on and suffer??

I have to agree with your article. Debbie Powers did more for animal rights here in Newfoundland than anyone else will ever do. There is a time for all creatures to die. I think that a no kill policy is cruel and causes a lot of suffering for animals. If an animal can have no quality of life why should they have to linger on and suffer. When I had my dog put down last year it was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made, but keeping her alive would have been cruel. There are many forms of cruelty to animals. Debbie Powers protected the animals in her care and knew that sometimes ending an animals life is sometimes the best thing that could be done for it.
