Unlike most animal related websites that posts photos and descriptions of dogs in shelters around the country in need of adoption, Dogs In Danger includes only dogs that are expected to be euthanized and includes a countdown clock that estimates when the animal will be put to death.
Some critics say the site employs a strong-but-extreme motivation to adopt dogs that would otherwise be put to sleep; others believe the site is emotionally coercing people who otherwise are not ready to take responsibility for a pet.
Good or bad? You decide.
