Hypothetical scenario here. Let’s say that I wanted to adopt a pet. Would it be better to adopt one from a no-kill shelter or a “regular” one?
I believe that animal life should be treated with at least some dignity, and should not be taken unless necessary - definitely not to simply “get rid of” the animal. But it’s a complex answer to the question, because adopting from a regular shelter, while directly saving an animal’s life, would help support the system taking it in the first place. Meanwhile, adopting from a no-kill shelter would have the exact opposite effect - supporting the system saving animal’s lives, but not saving one who’s life was actually directly in danger.
