WAITING DOG - Author Unknown

 A dog sits waiting in the cold sun
Too faithful to leave, too frightened to run
She's been there for days now with nothing to do
But sit by the road waiting for you.
She can't understand why you left her that day.
She thought she and you were stopping to play.
She's sure you'll come back and that's why she stays.
How long will she suffer? How many more days?
Her legs have grown weak. Her throat parched and dry.
She's sick from hunger and falls with a sigh.
She lays down her head and closes her eyes.
I wish you could see how a waiting dog dies.

We hereby promise to love and to care for the pets brought into this shelter to the best of our ability.
We promise to make them as comfortable as possible in an impossible situation.
We promise to do our best to find them new homes.
When all else fails, we promise to end their lives humanely in order to make room for the endless
supply of animals to follow.

However, we also stand firm with the following:
 
We did not cause these animals to be born into this overpopulated world.
We did not cause these animals to become a problem or inconvenience to their owners.
We did not cause their owners to move, to have kids, to become allergic too them, or to become ill.
We will not accept, nor allow to be placed on us, the guilt that belongs to the owners of these
pets!!!!
It is not our fault!!!!!
