This is good to know.
Now that people are aware of this they can, as suggested by Nathan Winograd, leave their pets on the streets "where they will be safer" than they are in the shelters.
Another suggestion would be to "stop people in the street and hand them a cat" which Mr. Winograd also suggests as an "ethical" alternative to the shelter.
Yet another lifesaving suggestion from Mr. Winograd would be to "go out to popular areas of the community and simply hand your cats to people, give them away, no questions asked."
It takes a village, yes?
NoKill is love...never forget that.
