In my opinion, yes. Animals should not be killed if they can't get adopted. Put it this way, if you were in a foster home and you couldn't get adopted, would you want to be killed? No, so why should the shelters kill the animals? Exactly, they shouldn't because that is called abuse. So final answer: All animal shelters should become no-kill animal shelters.
In the united states alone 400 million animals are hit and killed each year.

i believe there are too many kill shelters. just because dogs and cats are not adopted does not mean they need to be killed. they should have their lives spared. who ever kills these poor animals i hope you live miserably and the animals you kill shall haunt you forever.>:E
Dogs are sometimes humanly euthanized in shelters because they have been there for awhile without anyone to adopt them and the shelter needs room for strays all the time because of the over population of animals. Getting animals spayed and neutered is an easy fix to this problem.
There are sadly tons and tons of shelters that humanely euthanize (Usually it is an injection into a vein) animals after a certain length of stay. There are so many animals that are going into shelters than there are being adopted. However there are also no kill shelters that will keep an animal as long as it takes to find it a home. If you have to bring an animal to a shelter please find out if it is a no kill shelter if it is find somewhere else that isn't.
