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.
