The Merced County animal shelter is moving to a new facility and they're not taking their current residents. In fact, they plan on euthanizing all the dogs, cats and a few of the farm animals at the site.

A call has gone out to rescue groups to help.

Most of the dogs are pit bulls.

You can see their list of adoptable animals here.

If you know of a rescue group who may be able to take some of the dogs or cats, please refer them to Merced County's animal shelter.

WTF. It's not a damn grocery store where you dispose of all your inventory when you move. WTF.

It sure is appalling. There isn't a sane reason to not transport the animals over to the new facility. Health issues are always a concern with shelters, no matter how new they are.

Although, their ID skills need some work:

I am a male, brown and white Chihuahua - Smooth Coated.

With a coat draped over them to hide that fact, like when kids in movies do that to disguise themselves as an adult.

That is an absolutely disgusting policy.
Seriously. It made my stomach knot up. What the hell are they thinking "oh, fresh start, lets just throw everyone away?"
wtf.

That makes me really really angry. Like, letter writing angry.

What the hell is the point of being an animal shelter if you're not going to, ya know, shelter some animals?
This is like, "Oh, the orphanage/hospital/nursing home building wasn't adequate, so we're killing everyone and setting up shop down the street in a new building."
