Well I agree with them only because I've seen the homeless use animals to beg for money then mistreat the animal. I mean they usually live in crack houses. Give them a JOB,even a DAY job and see if theywill take care of it or give them PET FOOD. even then some would sell the pet food for hard liquor.

Be sure to read the story. The people that will be taking care of the animals are not homeless. The people will be paid to take care of the animal in order for them to NOT panhandle.

wrong. as usual waddle you are either clueless or are twisting simple facts around beyond recognition. like a spoilt child.

from the article in question :

"Beginning in August, the city is set to offer panhandlers up to $75 a week to stop begging and foster problem puppies from city animal shelters until the pups are ready for adoption.

The pilot program is called Wonderful Opportunities for Occupants and Fidos, or WOOF. It’s believed to be the first of its kind in the country. The program will pair ten dogs with people living in city housing, allowing the dogs to be socialized."

you probably don't know this but san francisco has a number of creative solutions for the homeless there. gone are the fat welfare checks, instead they have to be housed in some fashion. but more to the point, they are panhandlers, they are probably homeless in some fashion. so yes the people taking care of the dogs are basically homeless people living in nice shelters. notice how they change the homeless label to the more fashionalbe pc label occupants. just plain stupid.

from the article :

"But PETA claims that the program would put the animals at risk. They issued a statement which read, in part:

“The city is in essence experimenting with the lives of homeless animals and people. Many chronic panhandlers battle with addiction and mental health issues; dogs won’t be able to tell us if they were harshly scolded, randomly screamed at, smacked, scruffed, locked in a bathroom or closet, or otherwise mistreated.”

so true.

The animal rights organization has even offered to cut a check to the city in the amount of $10,000 to put an end to the pilot program. The amount is equal to the grant which is funding WOOF."

And PETA may also be hoping to get their hands on some of the puppies and kittens themselves to snuff them out in their death chamber rather than let them take a chance of living with a pesky human.

yes. oh and i agree, it's just a glorified scam. the innocent and possibly previously abused animals are certainly open to abuse by these temporarily housed homeless types.
