    Default Something I have never seen discussed here or on another forum

    I don't know why it popped into my head, but I recalled a lady from a very well known privately run pound (and one which does everything possible to help the animals and works very closely with rescue groups). This was a long time ago, but she delivered a little dog to me and I asked her what happened to the animals who were euthanised. Her exact words???? "A nice lady like you doesn't need to know."

    So what does happen to all the animals killed in pounds all over Australia?

    Just interested in the truth and not something heard third hand and hearsays.

    I can't be sure if its true... but I heard they went to landfill Would be better if they were cremated though which is what I originally figured they would do.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    They are taken to the rubbish dump. Same with pet uths at vets, unless you organise cremation etc.
    If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.

    My husband to this day thinks the vets buries your beloved pet. We had a rabbit pts as it was very sick and unhappy and the vet asked me if they 'should take care of it'. I said yes and we left. My hubby asked me where they were going to bury his very first pet.... I told him a place in Mitchell (local suburb that has a cemetary and crematorium).

    I am shocked they go to landfill, I assumed they were cremated, as surely that is more hygienic?

    My vet says if you pay for them to be buried they get buried, but pounds dogs and the like go for horse food. sad but true.
























    gotcha.. who cares where they go.. they are dead. Probably landfill.

    lets be honest........ if a dog it pts at teh pound, then as sad as it is, no one is gonna notice if it goes to land fill.......

    if its a pet, and you had any sort of attachment to it, one would think that you would take your dead pet home and bury it yourself?

    jsut my thoughts

    Yep I buried all my beloved pets myself.
    Unfortunately if you rent your property there may be a law against burying? Not sure.

    Once I'm dead I don't really care what happens to my body. It's the memories that count.

    Due to my spiritual belief system, i do not believe that a cadivre, a corpse, carcus call it what you will, is THE essence of the living being. That is in the soul, not the dead flesh of a corpse. Be that corpse human or canine, my beliefs are the same.
    Therefore, no, i would not bury my dead dog in the garden for the other dogs to dig up. Id leave it for the land fill. Not because i dont care, but i believe that the soul has left allready.

    Similarly, i will be incinerated in a cardboard box. I dont care, as i will be long gone by the time the funeral comes around.

    I think that they deserve to be laid to rest with dignity. My dogs will be getting cremated and put in little urns when they pass away.
