    Charitable organizations only thrive when they have public trust. Always disturbing when organizations believe they exist in a vacuum from stakeholder or public input for decisions of this magnitude and nature. While this decision was likely expedient for the caregivers (who, by nature have a name that evokes deep irony in this instance), it will leave a sad and indelible mark on animal sanctuary organizations for a long, long time. The mantra my mother drilled into me comes to mind: Think before you act, the consequences are yours to own and no one else’s.
