Pet Adoptions And Looking At Animal Shelters
The Sunday morning news covers pet adoptions and local animal shelter stories.
Yes I want a house and garden and animals! Still aspiring...
Today I'm trying to get back in the swing of things. I am still updating old blogs and now need to back up a Wordpress site (am seeking help will pay!) and then will update to a new Wordpress version which is mobile friendly etc etc.
I remembered with a sniff or two looking up pets for adoption after a friend's dog was eaten by a coyote. But that dog owner found a cutie dog within a few weeks.
It was interesting looking at the city shelters and observing the following.
In six local animal shelters 90+% of the dogs are pit bulls or mixes. About another 5% are chihuahuas.
The private shelters claim that the city shelters have an 85% euthanasia rate. So in the listings of 350 dogs I'm seeing 15% of the dogs that go in those.
I can get behind the new local requirements to neuter all pit bulls. Try and tell me people 90% don't want them! They are just a nice idea. Same with chihuahuas, which over populate the shelters thanks to Paris Hilton a few years ago.
I have to stay off those animal shelter sites. I want a farm . I want trainers and helpers. Oh yeah, I guess a platoon of poop scoopers. I want all those dogs. ALL. OF. THEM.
