Sad Story



I read the saddest article that says that due to the recession, pet owners are choosing to give up their beloved dogs and cats or put them down in order to save on medical costs for pets. Since most people do not have pet insurance, the thousands that it costs to take care of an animal is just not affordable on any level. I feel so horrible for these pets, as I do for the owners that have to give them up. I have a wonderful sweet cat and I could not imagine giving him up for any reason, especially financial, so my heart really breaks for those owners who have to give up something they love so they are able to afford a place to live. I know the only way to really make a difference here is to give more to local animal shelters that are being overworked due to the large amount of pets that no longer have homes. Or if you can afford it and want a pet, please go and adopt one of those pets in need from your local humane society. Pets are a wonderful, loving addition to your household and provide the best unconditional love that you can ever imagine!

That's a horrible thing - you would think that pet owners treat their pets like a child in the family! It's so cruel =/

I love my sweet somewhat moody cat - I'd much rather deal drugs that give away that giant ball of fur!

It is so sad to see more and more pets being brought to shelters. I swore we wouldn't get a second dog but when our friends needed a home for a little mixed breed that was headed for the pound I had to say we'd take her. Mixed breeds don't last long at the pound these days.
