Open Door Shelters

What exactly does "open door shelter" mean? Well, exactly that, a shelter whose door is open to any and all animals regardless of age, species, behavior, health, etc. It seems these days that everyone out their knows the term "no-kill" shelter but very few understand the true concept and certainly do not understand why the alternative is an "open door" shelter, NOT a "kill" shelter.

Kudos to two Pennsylvania animal shelters for building a site dedicated to educate the public on this sensitive topic. Now, open your mind and find out exactly what an open door shelter is and why these "no-kill" rescues could simply not exist without us.
