I have 4 dogs I rescued from shelters because of other people not taking responsibility for their own lives and what they have brought into it

quite common with kids and animals now, isnt it?

Sadly many dogs that are abandoned are traumatised and or have behavioural problems. Not the animals fault, but few people have the knowledge, skills, experience and home environment to handle them.

I would never introduce an adult rescue dog into my family when the children were young. We have rescued two dogs as young puppies and socialised them and they worked out fine.

Especially with kids in the family, I like to know something about the temperament of the parents and have only bought dogs from breeders that I trust.

Re: Over 7 million homeless pets a year, and we still BUY pets?!
i'd never buy one from the people round here,they get dogs/snakes/cats and breed from 6 months,just to sell pups for cash ,the family i know have 4 big dogs(on dss,in council home)and never seen them outside walking.or their exotic caat out in case she's stolen.it makes me sick.what did make me laugh they joined Jehova's group,and got given the money to get married,and the mum actually said "because we will be saved as the world is ending"even the kids breeding at 11 and 14.

Rescued two cats from the wild. They're awesome, but I don't call them "pets". We exist together, I am responsible for that which I take in to my home, but I don't "own" living creatures.

Instead of buying a pet go to a shelter or like me
pick up one that has been dumped.

I agree, if you want a pet, go to the animal shelter. There are so many who have been found alone, that they will be put down after a about a week if no one comes for them.

Do like the S Americans do, There are 5-6 dogs hit on the highway in a 1/4 mile stretch bu were I live, every night here by trucks, The idiots let them out to roam, and when they don't come home in the morning- oh well! I saw a beautiful German Shepherd cut in half last week, it's head and shoulders were sitting upright in the right lane. True story.

Re: Over 7 million homeless pets a year, and we still BUY pets?!
While I understand frustration with people who pay hundreds for a pet, sometimes spending a little is not a bad thing.

When we got our dog, who is now a few months old, the lady who we got him from - she paid for the puppies' first vet visit/shots, and asked for $100 per puppy to cover that cost. She even had the Vet. receipt/copy of the bill to show it. I had no problem paying the $100 - I'd spend money anyway on that first vet. visit if she hadn't done it.

you are the definition of why our world is in the state it is - soul-less creature that you are.
Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. You can feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love. What is God? The Eternal One Life underneath all the forms of life. What is love? To feel the presence of that One Life deep within yourself and within all creatures. To be it. Therefore, all love is the love of God.

Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to die before you die - and find that there is no death.

Re: Over 7 million homeless pets a year, and we still BUY pets?!
all my animals are rescues. i feed the outside cats which won't come in the house.

it snowed last night and their are children, elderly and domesticated animals which need attention. i don't have much in the way of money, but my family and the animals i care for give me love and i appreciate that. i also drive the elderly to doctor's appointments and other places. for free. they do kick in for gas, but that's all.

help those in need. it doesn't take much and those truly in need do appreciate the help.

Most times, if you aren't buying a pet it is either impulsive or you can't afford it. Many of you may be bleeding hearts out there, but probably not most of you, well at least not me.

I will buy a pet known for its temperament, size, needs, and looks. At a puppy's age, I will have a good idea what it will be as an adult.

I will pay for that assurance. Otherwise they would be in the pound too, and there would be no purebred dogs.

Bleeding hearts, go get five dogs, and I will plop the cash down for my one or two.

I'm all in favor of animal adoption. I have a shelter doggie myself. However, not all animals are suitable for adoption, and not allowing people to buy the breed of their choice won't stop idiots from getting a pet, then discarding it. Maybe it would help to make laws tougher to get a dog or cat in the first place, I don't know.

Re: Over 7 million homeless pets a year, and we still BUY pets?!
We live out in the country, so drop offs happen a lot out here. One was a large mix that just looked like it would rip you a new one but was very well tempered. One of our daughters took it to her house in the city to protect her family; great dog with her kids and she takes it on walks to show she has him. Neighborhood punks steer clear of her house and the houses on either side.

Our 3 current drop offs: Golden retriver, a really odd looking large terrier shepard mix and a cat that eats whatever the dogs eat.

Do not understand why they were left out here; they are great company, very loving and at over 95 lbs each for the dogs are a frightening site out in the yard. We spend about 60 dollars monthly for Costco dogfood to feed them which is not much for the pleasure and protection they give.

As a plus we never have to prewash anything that goes into the dishwasher. The dogs happily clean whatever I cook and the cat lends a hand with certain scraps.

My brother in law and his wife spent 1k on a purebred olde english bulldog a few years back. He never did the research about the health problems this breed has. He had to have this dog because he he saw someone with one and had to get one. He just spent 19k on vets bills due to the dog tearing some tendons in both its back legs all from running around at a dog park. This dog also has numerous respiratory problems. These breeding practices lead to these animals having horrible health issues.

Sometimes shelters and rescues are the problem

I'm single, live alone, and often have to leave my pets alone for 9-10 hours a day while I'm working. But I have a large fenced yard and am able to take my dogs with me to roam over the farm when I'm working at home.

Because of what I wrote above, I would be disqualified from some shelters and rescue groups. They often demand a stay at home 'parent' for the dogs and some freak out about dogs spending hours off leash chasing rabbits and mice.

The happy life I would give them doesn't matter, they would rather kill the puppies and kitten then see them go to less then a perfect home. Just read some of the quotes and writings from the head of the Humane society. They don't believe that animals should ever be pets. They believe that death is better for dogs and cats then to be debased by being someone's pet.

*FYI I'm never been denied a pet from a rescue group or humane society. If I really wanted one, I know how to lie. But I've read their rules and heard many horror stories from what others have faced.

RESPECT and have REVERENCE for ALL life on this planet (human and animal).


And of course following God's commandments and living by the New Covenant would also help!!!! If all wrongs were done away with, this planet would be a paradise and suffering would be gone for all LIFE. But no! People are still intertwined with greed, sin, war, destruction of planet, murder and abortion. Again, stop all of this, and this planet will become a paradise.

However people ignore the warnings signs (earthquakes, tsunamis, etc etc) and keep living the wrong way. When a lot of the population lives the wrong way, suffering will NOT end.

This is one person that says it well:

It can be hard to find a healthy kitten or puppy these daze.

Their rarely available in the umm, more affluent areas.

So people buy them.

Perhaps we need to move some of these poor creatures and make them available?

I'm all in on that and would donate even after being a victim of Sandy.

Very true. we have two cats we adopted and a corgie dog we got at a pet store because my hubby really wanted one. It took him years to convince me to get a dog. I was so nervous about the responsability. I got two books first to read. We ended up getting the puppy and he is awesome. He's my first dog and I am totally in love. We thought about getting him a friend to play with and looked at shelters, but I worry about getting a dog that could have behavioural problems that could be passed on to our dog. Also, the shelters are strict because we don't have a yard we have been told they will not adopt one out to us. Same thing when we looked at some cats, I said I let my cats go outside and they said they would not adpot one to us. My cats like going outside and always come in at night and are never out if we will be gone for several hours...oh well.

Re: Over 7 million homeless pets a year, and we still BUY pets?!
I bought a cat from a shelter, it was really sick so I figured I would adopt it take it to the vet and it would get better. a couple thousand dollars and over 10 vet visits only to find out six months after we adopted him he had FIP and we had to put him to sleep. FIP is fatal in cats they don't live past two years. I called the adoption agency to tell them because FIP is a litter condition and they just said "oh". I am sure they knew the cat was really sick with something fatal when they adopted him to us...jerks.
