12. It's not a bit inflammatory, esp. to one who has worked to save and rescue animals from high-kill

animal shelters. The shelter where I volunteer puts down about 50% of the animals that come in. In the last year alone, thousands of animals have died because of pet over-population. Most of it is due to lack of spaying & neutering, but backyard breeders are a huge problem, often dumping unsold litters in the shelter and expecting taxpayers to deal with their negligence.
