Shelter workers not to blame for putting down animals

For the past 20 years, I have done dog rescue. Mostly border collies, but I have also rescued an old golden retriever, a whippet, a couple of Queenslands and a lot of mixed breed dogs. Doing rescue meant that I had to take a trip out to our local animal shelter, the place where unwanted dogs usually end up. That shelter is old, smelly and a terrible place for both animals and people.
