The refuge was unique. It refused to euthanize tough-to-adopt pets. (Some were antisocial; others were impossible to potty train.) Eventually the owners of Pet Rescue ran into money trouble. And yesterday the Humane Society took over.
Workers at the shelter are worried. The Human Society accepts only "adoptable" animals. And volunteer Terry Alice says many of the quirkier cats will become homeless. "I'm not worried about the pretty ones," she says. "This is Miami; people can be shallow. It's the shy ones and the ones that are semi-feral who I'm concerned about."
Pet Rescue employee Katherine Sullivan would say only: "We're really scrambling to find homes for them."
