OH BOO HOO... POOR ELLEN DEGENERATE....

YOU SIGNED A CONTRACT WITHOUT READING IT, AND YOU BAWL LIKE A BABY ON YOUR SHOW TO DRUM UP SYMPAHTY FOR YOUR OWN STUPIDITY???

THE AGENCY SHOULD SUE YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU ARE WORTH... YOU ALONE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR RUINING THEIR BUSINESS.

THESE PEOPLE RUN A GOOD OPERATION, AND NOW A STUPID HAS-BEEN SIT-COM ACTOR IS TRYING TO DESTROY THEM...

DEGENERATE IS USING HER PROGRAM AS A PLATFORM TO SPEW HER HATRED AT THIS ORGANIZATION...

THESE PEOPLE ARE NOW RECEIVING DEATH THREATS BECAUSE OF DEGENERATE'S ACTIONS.

THERE ARE GROUNDS FOR LEGAL ACTION ON THEIR PART, AND I HOPE THEY TAKE EVERY FILTHY DIME DEGENERATE HAS.

THEN SHE (DEGENERATE) CAN CRAWL BACK UNDER HER ROCK....

Ellen is pulling some kind of game, but "these people" (the dog rescue agency) are hardly pure. They did not ascertain in advance that Ellen was a lousy candidate... it should have been easy: she had already taken four dogs and adopted them out without the other agencies's permission; she had cats; there were problems; they did not visit her home; the list goes on.

Dear Douchbag, what does this have to do with being white? You should be more ashamed for imitating a human.

Who is being the *** hole here, lets not forget that this operation's sole purpose is finding homes for animals that NEED A GOOD HOME, so lets get over the fine print and ourselves and give the sweet doggie back to the kids that what to give him or her a great place to live. MOMS FOR MUTTS, someone needs to do a sit down,please don't forget why you started this whole thing in the first place.

That was well stated ! I hold up your words and totally agree with your concern . Millions of animals are put to sleep there simply is not enough people able or willing to care for them. So when you see an agency acting so carelessly it makes me wonder what their real motive is here.

More like witch hunting the rich because they can by their own policies so it seems. They are also after the media as well for reporting under the freedom of the press. So any normal person can see where the agency stands on this matter.

I only wish that people would be this concerned & outraged when children are being harmed & murded in there own home. When D.C.F.S. leaves them there to be killed.After the abuse has been reported by the school & Doctors.This is in IL. You don't here a WORD out of the public or our politicans.

Oh, give me a break. First of all,$3,000 is chump change to Ellen. Second, if she loved animals, she wouldn't have adopted five dogs in a row and tried to keep them with her cats when she knows there is a problem; she would not have given those dogs away without checking out the families & following the agency rules; in this case, she would have let the agency know; she would not give the dog in this case to a family that refused to fill out an application; she would not have animals when she is away so much; she would have personally trained this dog, with help from a trainer; the list goes on.
Rich or not she took the time to help an animal with her money I really dont care if it was 3 cents or 3000 $ the point is people dont spend money for animals to put them in bad homes.

Most of what you stated is speculation the should of and would of answers I do not really follow as it is something you might have done but everyone is not you its called choices from individuals that set us aside from one another. either good or bad.

In this case Ellen giving her pet to a good home was the proper thing to do the case being that the dog was in a loving home.

millions of people give away puppies and kittens each and every year much in the same way but you do not see an agency taking any action to stop this because they cannot control or police this action. The police were out of order as this is a civil matter the city and the state can be sued.

If I was Ellen I would take this to court .

People in the news poll 82% disagree with the agency . 18% side with them that means there is a good chane that a jury will hand Iggy back to Ellen if she pushes the issue.

oh come on! so she is getting death threats, yeah ill admit that has to be scary, but honestly she is a celeb, im pretty sure that she neednt worry too much, she constantly has people with her and watching her. This isn't anymore sad then a little kid crying over a dog running away or something, it's kind of ridiculous how it is such a big deal just because she is an A-lister.

Leave Ellen alone. She loves animals and that is the reason she gave her dog up. Don't you get it? Keep your head up Ellen. No more tears. Your true fans will always stand-by you. I know you will always be my #1Talk show host.

What I find interesting is the fact that the "Rescue Group" only choosing to following their own rules, when it is in their best interest...or when they can stick it to someone for their own personal benefit! As a breeder of purebred dogs, that also rescues...I can tell you this holier-than-thou attitude is rampant with these large rescue groups.

It's amazing how some of the up-front contract requirements such as a home check were overlooked when the dog was placed with Ellen, probably because of her celebrity status; however, when the dog was improperly placed in another loving home for the benefit and well-being of the dog...suddenly we (the rescue group) are required to follow ALL of the rules and no celebrity is going to walk all over us!!!

I thought the purpose of "rescue" was to place these dogs in loving homes. It seems the rescue group could have allowed the hairdresser's family to properly apply for the dog and could have conducted a home check, etc...instead of just taking the dog and acting as if the family didn't even exist!

Hank,
People who are stuck on "rules" don't understand the term "mitigating circumstances." I guess YOU didn't go to law school (which I did). If it had ended up in a court of law, I have no doubt as to what the verdict would be from a compassionate and caring judge.
Kids and dogs belong together. I had my dog as a kid under 14. My kids were both babies, growing up with our late dog. Adults don't have to time to play with dogs. If you had watched the video, you would have understood that Ellen and Portia were just about the notify the agency, but they were trying to help the agency by finding a family first. So Ellen made a mistake. And she admitted it. The agency is being small minded by not being big enough to admit that THEY made a mistake too, because now their shop is closed and they are hated in their community. People do NOT like people who are mean to kids. For the agency, it's a MAJOR publicity nightmare and one that may very well run them out of business (good riddance I say).
You might have gone to law school but you didn't graduate and get your license, otherwise you wouldn't sound so stupid and how do you know what a judge would decide unless you have one in your pocket.

with all that is going on in the world why are the celebraties that break the rules the media big news??? What about soldiers and seniors that are being denied help?
Too bad the media is so quick to jump on the band wagon and try to pull all us animal lovers into the muck.
She broke the rules; dog returned; doesn't mean they can't work something out..except now, all the
coverage makes it difficult.

Five times in a row, giving the dogs to unsuitable families? I guess she didn't "get it."

Trying to adopt a dog into her home when she knows she doesn't have time for it; when there are aggressive cats; etc.
Doesn't sound like an animal lover to me.

Why (about the cockers)? I have two cockers I raised from puppies. My children were under 8...and they even watched the female give birth to 6 puppies. They helped me care for all 8 cockers and they were very gentle with them. Cockers love children. I am curious about that under 8 rule. Please explain.
Some of the dogs we get in have had very hard lives. They've been abused, abandoned or neglected and are poorly socialized. Most of them are fine once they are living in a home where they get proper care, training and socialization. Small children, even ones who love dogs, are often frightening for a nervous dog because they make sudden movements and sometimes grab a dog by the ears or fur (not meaning any harm) and then suddenly the dog has bitten the child. There are people in our rescue who've been working with Cockers much longer than I have and they think that adopting out to older children works out better for everyone involved.
I love Cocker Spaniels and think they make wonderful family pets. A well raised and happy Cocker is just about as cute and happy a dog as I can imagine...but a rescue dog can be a challenge. I have an adopted Cocker that I do NOT allow to be around children. When people ask me if they can pet my dogs, I ask them not to pet him. He's just too unpredictable and I would never want anyone to be bitten.
Another foster we had for four months was the sweetest dog. He was 10 years old and had lived with one family for his entire life. Then a baby was born, and 19 months later the baby grabbed his ears, and poof, the toddler had a tiny bite mark and the dog had no home. He had not done it out of any aggression or temper, just as a response to a normal, unpredictable toddler. That dog now lives happily with an older couple who think he's the best dog in the world.
