You may have missed it. At least, that’s what happened according to a Facebook post by The Humane Society of Utah, which Photoshopped four of their dogs into scenes of Earth-saving , UFO-battling heroics. It was a fun way for the shelter to promote adoption, because “you never what story your shelter pet might have to share,” according to the post.

But, like all good things, there can be too many cats, dogs, horses, bunnies, ferrets and other domestic animals. Having a pet is like any other commitment or responsibility: Some people can handle it, and some people should never even try. Organizations that step in to clean up after the latter group do a great service. But for decades, municipal shelters were forced to euthanize hundreds, ev...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

There should be no reason these days to put down animals in shelters. But, why not take this further and ban puppy sales at all Utah pet stores? These poor canines most likely come from puppy mills that are packed with unhealthy “breeders” who live in tiny, cramped cages 24/7. The puppies sold at stores usually develop health problems and folks who buy them miss out on adopting a wonderful shelter animal.
