Comment submitted with request to Delete: "I work for the SPCA--and animals are not immediately killed. If an animal is picked up without ID or microchip they are tested for contageous disease, such as feline leukemia or rabies. If diseased, they are euthanized. If not, they are quarantined and put up for adoption. If a person is foolish enough not to ID or microchip their pet and don't keep their vaccinations up, they can't blame us if we have to put them down to protect the other shelter animals."
Second comment submitted with request to Delete: "Gill, you obviously do not know anything about the SPCA and you are basing your entire opinion on one incident. (which perhaps never happened anyhow) Stereotypical statements such as yours usually arise from ignorance and this serves as one such example. Ninety percent of the definitions on this site based on organizations, cliques, or groups that deviate from the general consensus are stereotypes, but this is the only one I felt strong enough about to submit a request for deletion which probably won't matter anyhow."
