Up for Discussion: Should animal welfare organizations permit adoptions to individuals with unaltered pets in their homes?Posted: February 6, 2013
A spayed cat is in a county shelter and is at the top of the urgent list. There is an interested adopter whose references are excellent, the home visit evaluation is positive. There is every indication that the adopter would provide a loving forever home. The adopter currently has a purebred companion dog that is unaltered and is very honest about their desire to have a litter of puppies.
It is up to you to approve or deny the adoption. What would you do and why?
