Don't let so many animals be born or make the law stricter on people who can own an animal.
A lot of animals that go into shelters seem to be given to shelters due to ex owners ditching them; or shelters take animals in to save animals from abusive owners. Less children and better laws would help a lot. Charities are a wonderful thing; we have a great one our friend "J" knows; they help pay for jabs, neuts e.t.c. Especially for those who took in an animal to save it.
Society has always rather cared for its money than anything else; that isn't new. :/
The gas box is a frightening experience for them; which is a big reason it is wrong.
I don't think it is possible to kill humanely. :/ I'll be honest.
My grand-father who has had to on the farm did say: "Humane should mean they are dead before they know what is happening, little to no pain and no fright."
Huddling them up and frightning them to the point of bad bowels or vomitting is not humane.
Also what would we do when human babies get into this situation? (Which in my opinion is only a matter of time.)
As I stated in my opinion killing an animal without reason is just as bad as murdering a human without reason; it involves killing. So if parents can't keep a cat they can kill it; chuck it away like a worn out toy? It is still allowing them the moral standing of: "We can't keep it; so kill it." Which a lot do; they manipulate that. Which is very very bad. Since pets are not a toy to throw away.
Also I know you are not attacking me; do not worry. :] I just got...well as you can see a lot of quotes some friendly some not so friendly. So...yeah. Can get annoying.~
Getting the government involved in pet ownership would be a rather tricky process and one that a lot of people would not like. Without actual physical home checks, how would they be able to actually monitor how many animals an individual has? What about being sure that the animals are fixed at an appropriate age? Such measures would result in an increase in taxes and another way to spend them that people will see as a waste - you'd have a s**t ton of unhappy general populace just over the cost of such measures, not to mention disgruntled homeowners, having to allow strangers to come in and snoop about (it's easy enough to adjust the truth on a sheet of paper [surveys] without them ever knowing, and if something came up it could be argued that the animal was obtained after the survey was completed, kind of hard to prove otherwise)
I'd much rather see/hear of people giving up their unwanted pets to shelters and/or putting them down (preferably methods that are quick with minimal pain) than continuing to abuse/neglect them because they don't care.
As far as humans go - a good culling of humans wouldn't be the worst thing to happen, but how would you ever decide who makes the call of who lives and who dies, and what would the requirements for continued life be?
And let's face it, it's already happened once and isn't likely to be repeated; there'll never be enough agreeance about it throughout the world to go ahead.
The only really "humane" way to cull the human population would be through some kind of survival of the fittest thing, but again - who's going to be the dictator sitting in their plush office making the decisions? Humans are, at present, top of the food chain - there's nobody above us that gets to make the decisions, unless you believe in some sort of "god"
