Newborn Pups saved! by Spursfan on 11 February 2009 4:07pm
Although this story has a happy ending, thank goodness, it shows humanity (or ssome parts of it at least) in an extremely bad light. How could people be so cruel.

They still had their umbilical cords attached...it makes me so cross and sad.

How awful! And the poor mother dog, wondering where her puppies are. Terrible!

So much sadness in the world, isn't it? And , yes, Mom is in distress now too. Bastards who did this.

Fate intervened in THEIR case, but how many times does this happen and the pups are NOT saved? That's the sad part of it, especially in these so-called more enlightened times. It's like something they would do in the 18th century or something!

I mean, it's not as if there are no places to take unwanted pups these days. The sensible, caring person would surely take them to a shelter?

I can't understand the mentality of people who do such cruel thngs like this.

Shelters here in the US usually make you pay to drop off unwanted animals. And vets make you pay to have them euthanized if that's the route you take. It's pretty expensive. I had to pay $100 to drop off a mother cat and her three kittens--and had to drive about 100 miles, too, because there were so many stray cats that the shelters all around were full.

I'm sure you don't have to pay here, Judy - unless of course you want to make a donation.

A friend of mine runs the local Humane Society in a small rural town north of here. "Kitten season" has seemed to have started early this year and she's flooded with unwanted animals. The last two kittens I fostered for her have gone to a great new home so she's bringing me a pregnant cat this week-end. Anyone want a kitten?

The shelters require a "donation" to take the animals. They "suggest" a certain amount per animal for food and shelter. I was so desperate, I paid it. I'd already been turned down by 32 shelters and foster homes.

There have been some people catching feral cats and having them spayed/neutered, then returned to their former haunts. It reduces the number of feral kittens. Feral cats are awfully hard to place because they have such a hard time acclimating to being house pets. Some never do.
