Today's Rescue - L.A. County Shelters
It makes me really sad (and sometimes very angry) to look at L.A. County Animal Control's online adoption pages - the dogs aren't given names and the pictures are, on the whole, really crappy*. Is it too much trouble to slap names on the dogs (so they become individuals instead of objects), and post pictures that look like animals and not blurry, fuzzy things? It's the digital age, people!
At any rate, here are just a few of the pups waiting for homes. Today, there are 481 available for adoption.
*Except for the Agoura shelter - they actually have a professional photographer who volunteers time to take pictures for them. And what do you know? Apparently, Agoura has the best adoption rate of all the County shelters.
