A Despicable Killing


It is despicable that Einstein was killed by the Santa Barbara County Shelter today. Second Chance Cocker Rescue was ready, willing, and more than able to rescue, train, and find a loving home for this dog. Shame on the cruel and insensitive people who should never be in a position to make such decisions — who, in fact, should never be near animals at all.
