|Area puppy Leonard Samuelson, shown here adorably crying out for help from his personal Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, will be executed tomorrow unless adopted by a loving and stable family, preferably without other dogs., by 6 p.m.|
The shelter's plan is quickly drawing criticism from animal right's groups around the world. One such group, Animal Autonomy Now (AAN), is calling for an immediate stay of execution. According to AAN president Fran Leafletter, there are more effective ways to promote the assimilation of shelter animals into human society without requiring adoption. "Instead of what is essentially a transfer of ownership without consent of all involved parties, why not set up a mutually agreed upon relationship where the dog provides goods and/or services in exchange for room and board? This is 2017. Dogs can smell cancer now!"
