What happens when one drops an animal off at a pound? Picture this: a tearful child waving goodbye to his pet at the pound, distraught that he could not take care of it. As the animal walks down the corridor to meet its fate, whimpering cries bounce off the wall and a smell of dirt mixed with toxic moisture lingers in the air. It is at this moment, walking through this dank hall, that the animal knows. The animal panics, ears become flat, and its posture slackens.
