And yet I still have my kids doing fundraisers for sports and band why is this Poland school Board. The line has got to drawn some where. You keep asking for more and the people that pay taxes keep getting less

HAHAHAH, PoundPuppy....your comment really makes me laugh.....I would LOVE to know where you get your information from, so I can laugh at them too. It honestly doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Let me ask you....WHO would pay Animal Charity $15 to put a cat down? Oh PoundPuppy, it's funny what people believe, isn't it?

Wow BlossomB, you have no right whatsoever to question my dedication. How dare you specifically harrass me like that...you have NO IDEA who I am and the contribution I have provided for the animal community. I was simply the next person to comment and you happened to be above mine. I commend you for doing all that you can to rescue animals and get them healthy, if there were more people like you (AND ME), then we wouldn't even have to worry about any of this. It's funny you should ask about Animal Charity because I have adopted two animals from there. And YES, they were neutered/spayed prior to adoption, tested for heartworm and feline diseases, treated for fleas, dewormed and vaccinated. So there's the answer to THAT question. Why don't you call Animal Charity and talk to their adoption person? I'm sure he/she would be happy to talk with you about the work they do there. They are a NON-PROFIT vet clinic that doesn't charge outrageous prices so people CAN afford to get the right care for their animals. How much do you pay for services at your vet? I would bet money that Animal Charity is much cheaper than where you go. You are so funny, questioning if I even like animals. I've got a paw print tattoo, and I'm totally obsessed with animals. But I am realistic and understand that NOT EVERY ANIMAL CAN BE SAVED. I'm slightly optimistic about the Cat Ladies Society being back open. Hopefully they can get their act together and start PROPERLY caring for their cats. Would you like to start a group and see if we can come to a solution to this large overpopulation problem?

Here's a question....what do you want these organizations to do with the stray animal population...keep them all? I called Angels and they gave me a rough estimate of how many animals they put down each year....it wasn't a good number. But I'm glad they are not out there, spreading disease, having multiple litters of kittens or getting killed by a number of horrible ways (dogs, guns, cars). But if you want to keep all the stray cats alive, why don't you tell us your address, and we can start a group, and anytime someone finds a stray cat, which is EVERYDAY, then YOU can take care of it. Or instead of complaining and throwing assaults, maybe you should help to get these animals adopted, educating the public about spaying/neutering. I don't believe that ANYBODY has a right to complain/argue about something that 1. they don't know all the information about 2. they aren't doing a damn thing to help change. Also, just stop it with the "euthanasia happy" comments....you are out of your mind if you think ANYBODY likes to put down animals. Angels and other organizations do what they have to do to control the overpopulation, stop disease, and save as many animals as possible...and that means euthanizing sometimes. Nothing is going to change with a negative attitude...so stop complaining, get off your butt and help to make a change.

Let's just say if I owned a cat and it happened to get loose, I would be GLAD that Animal Charity stopped it's suffering. However, this was a STRAY cat...it did NOT have an owner. Ok, so you said you were thinking about keeping the cat...did you go get it's shots, get it fixed? It could have been pregnant, and then you would have had a bunch of kittens to deal with too. The fact of the matter is that dealing with animals is NOT an easy job. Do you honestly believe that those people WANT to euthanize animals? They wake up and say "oh my gosh, I'm so happy to go and kill a bunch of animals today!" Really, people, come on!!! From the story, Animal Charity did not LIE about euthanizing the cat. I love the sad story this person painted, really grabs at your heartstrings...but it also makes me want to puke. What is that address of where you work? I will go around and pick up the thousands of stray cats in the community so that you can see them laying in the sun outside your office. "Thinker" you are the only sane person on here with an educated comment about the problem of STRAY cats and the work that the humane society does.
