Really? I find that so hard to believe

This person has ISSUES and needs to see a therapist. Not kidding either.

I personally agree with practically everything he had to say. Granted it was a rant, and rants tend to be negative. But I could imagine if you had to deal with people bringing in their animals for various, solve-able, problems I would get mad too.

I did a report on the humane society and the pound in my city.

In my small city alone.. in one month over the summer over 300 cats and dogs are put to sleep... they got there some how. A stray is a stray for a reason.. somewhere in its blood line someone let their dog loose and didn't get it fixed therefore ALL of these animals are caught and put to sleep.

I feel sorry for this person. They have a VERY tough job and lets be honest. Many people are idiots and This person meets them all.

So I agree with pretty much everything this person says, but why do I feel like a bad person for owning two cats?

My Girlfriend wants a dog real bad...long story short, we are not in a position to properly care for a dog. But when we are, we will get one. THis makes her EXTREMELY upset, and if she wasn't with me she would have one right now. But, that dog would be back at the pound in 3 months.

Basically many people do not think before they get a pet. It's ok to think with your heart, but before you do anything rash, think with your head.

Its one thing to literally pick up a stray dog off of the street and do everything within your power to find it a good home

Its another thing to go to the pound or to just buy a dog on whim and figure out you can't take care of it and THEN not even TRY to find it a home and take it to the pound for it to just be put down.

Hehe, sorry.. I get so worked up about comman sense with animals.

Im in the same boat, RocketSeason- my boyfriend and I would love to get a dog right now but we know its not a good time. HOWEVER we found the sweetest stray and since we can't take care of it properly I found him a wonderful home- and even then I might push to keep him AND give him a good home. But I wouldn't go out and find a dog to take care of.. this one found us and by golly I am doing everything in my power to give him a good home

Been there, done that and still do. The stories are all heartbreaking. The stupidity and irresponsible behaviour of some (not all) pet owners could fill volumes. What I find incredibly ironic is that the most ignorant and unfeeling usually have the most children.....but that is another story and just my personal observation.
