Shelter dogs’ documentary
The documentary “Shelter Dogs” was Sue Sternberg and produced by HBO. It features dog shelters that house rescued dogs. This documentary shares the story of a dog shelter that considers euthanasia as a humane choice for the dogs whose life has no future. According to the documentary, each year in America, five million dogs are brought to shelters. Most of these dogs are found astray in the streets, and others are abandoned by their owners. Other dogs are surrendered by their owners because they are unable to maintain them in their homes. Those who take the dogs to the shelters say they cannot find time to keep and groom the dogs because of their tight schedules. Many prefer to take dogs to shelters than euthanize them. The dogs kept in shelters face different destinies. Few are adopted by people looking for pets, but the rest will never find homes. Many dogs will stay in the shelters in their entire lives. There is ongoing controversy concerning what to do with unwanted dogs. Some shelters keep them for the rest of their lives, other shelters choose to euthanize them.
