I’d sue them for theft

Quit your yapping,kid, and suck it up – we’ve decided

Dog rescue shelter finds family’s lost dog but refuses to give it back, claiming they’d found a “better” home for it.  Four-year-old boy whose puppy it was is upset.

I love dogs myself, but I do notice that many of the most fervent animal saviors don’t think much of their fellow humans.

    A few years back, we fell in love with a senior dog whose photo and description we saw online at a shelter in Connecticut. We wanted a companion for our other senior shelter rescue dog but the shelter told us they wouldn’t accept applications from “out of state”. Considering Connecticut and NY abut and I was no more than 25 minutes from the shelter, was willing to make a nice donation to the shelter to take the dog home, I was shocked we were refused the opportunity to even APPLY to take the dog home. I wasn’t calling from California. At first, I took the woman’s word, I said thank you, but kept looking back at the shelter’s website, and there the dog sat, still for adoption. It was cruel to the dog, and the woman who ran the shelter wasn’t thinking at all about the animal as we were really the perfect choice to give the dog a great home. I often wonder if the dog found a home.

      The last thing most animal activists care about is animals. It’s about controlling people and of course $$$.

    • There was an article I found and posted here last year about how many dogs PETA was killing in its “Rescue” shelters: Something like 85% – thousands and thousands.

      EOS: That was surely driven by ongoing funding considerations. When next you look for a rescue dog, Yonkers has GREAT dogs, and they let me, a Stamford resident leave with TWO, on the same day even!!!!

      • Yeah, but you were wearing your gun. EOS would have to bring her son along.

        LA: I’m not sure it was about funding. After all, I did offer to make a decent donation. I think it was the personality of the woman who ran the shelter. she thought all the dogs were hers, that no one could rise to the level of her care. She was peculiar, to say the least. I’ve used Adopt-a-Dog in Armonk with great success.

      CT sucks in just about every way that remotely resembles politics!
      However, hate to say it, NY ain’t any better!

    If I were the family who got this dog, I could not imagine keeping it.

    The people who run this “shelter” are sick. Pets are family members.

    Dogs are property; property must be returned to the rightful owner.
