"I had often thought when I encountered cruelty and neglect that there
was a whole army of people who did these unspeakable things, a great,
unheeding horde who never spared a thought for the feelings of the
helpless creatures who depended on them. It was frightening in a way,
but thank heavens there was another army ranged on the other side, an
army who fought for the animals with everything they had – with their
energy, their time, their money.” – James Herriot

One more: "“But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably
diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on
unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they
might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a
hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.” - George Eliot (a dog lover, btw) in Middlemarch

How does this work? I have the impression that anywhere you go, there's a dog shelter overflowing with adoptable pets. Where do these transporters take the dogs that there isn't already a surplus?
Also, I'm frankly beginning to think Ohio is the animal-welfare capital of the US. I'm biased though as a resident supporter of the new Animal Cruelty Task Force of Ohio (but I can't seem to convince them that auto-play on the homepage is a bad idea).
