I'm adopting an Australian Cattle Dog from a no-kill shelter/sanctuary called Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.

After watching a couple of those "gee, animals get euth'd all the time, adopt adopt adopt neuter neuter neuter" videos, I'm starting to feel guilty because the dog I'm adopting wouldn't be PTS if I didn't adopt him. They have a great life at the sanctuary. But a shelter close by euthanizes maybe 70%, and they live in cold metal cages. Should I back out of the adoption and adopt a dog from the kill shelter? I've wanted this dog for 7 months; he's basically my dream dog. Am I just being dumb?
