I recently went to a city shelter (whose name will remain anonymous). I was very disturbed at what I saw. Beyond the prison walls, I witnessed many animals confined in small cages without any toys, blankets, or bedding. There was also feces left in their cages. I knew that I could do a better job at making these animals feel comfortable, so I decided to open my own shelter. I am using my personal money, along with tax deductible donations from the public.
