This won't leave my brain so I MUST type....

Sheltered dogs: sounds like dogs that were comforted and taken care of and spoiled, sheltered implying they did not receive enough freedom

But if I said...

Dogs in a shelter: you might think of miserable, crying and howling dogs, in cages and dirty, not in a loving environment, sounds over crowded and noisy

Placing dogs in a place of shelter (Dogs in a shelter) came off as negative
While dogs being spoiled and pampered uses sheltered as a verb, an action word, was very positive.

So sheltered was the act, and dogs benefited.
However, dogs being IN a shelter, a noun, was quite a depressing thought....

shit I was going somewhere with this and lost it...
