I can see how they would work,I just never heard of it,I don't know if there's any in Newfoundland? I've heard of safe havens for baby's before...that I think is a good idea,too many people simply "throw them out".
Same with pets.
I wouldn't for the life of me "take an animal to wal-mart"...I was quite thrilled when walmart stopped selling neglected fish out my way!
Every living thing should be given a chance.
& Personally,i'd get from a shelter (or rescue) before a breeder any day.Cost means nothing to me.I'll be paying X amounts of dollars a month on food,etc,& vet visits etc,so initial costs are going to be more in the long run anyway.& That's quite ok with me.
Breeder costs,shelter costs,it doesn't matter.What matters is it's an animal,it needs a loving home.
Pets do cost money,& I have a ton of pets,so I definitely know the cost.
I also like how shelters out my way have a "rule" that pets must be spayed or neutered...I love that.
The idea of drop boxes is new to me,my guess is it's "not a new thing,but if it saves a life,I'm for it.
