Not what I'm saying at all. What I said was that keeping alive animals that aren't deemed attractive or have a superficial defect (a defect that doesn't effect it's functioning) is different (and hence okay), to keeping alive an animal with impaired functioning causing it stress or the constant need for interference/intervention. Keeping alive animals with severe impairments causing it to not function properly is not a second chance, it's forced suffering. I say this with the assumption that you're asking for animals with issues worse than a kinked tail, or missing foot, as those problems are generally superficial. But you mentioned neurological issues in another thread, that's a whole new ball game.
