Slaughter.....Dog Food.....Would You?

Has or would anyone ever give up their animal for dog food? Some people here don't seem to mind. I think its wrong! Terribly wrong. No matter what. I want to know what you guys think. I know there are a lot of other slaughter post but they all have TONS of posts. I hope this is okay. Just let me know if you would or have. I want to see your point of view.....

I think I would have it put down before I would put it through a slaughterhouse. I would do my best to sell it or give it away first.

my mum has once. A pony we had. I can't remember what was wrong with her, I was to young. I guess she thought is was better to sell her to slaughter, then spend money to put her down, being a single mum with two kids. She was the only horse we had at that stage. Wait no, we had 3 others on free agistment at her friends stable.
But I would never do it.

I would never sell my horse to slaughter, but if someone were in a difficult predicament, can't afford it, and most definitely can't sell the horse, ALPO!

I'd never send my horse to slaughter either. :(
I'd have it put down.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.
