You make me sick. Check out planned parenthood, so we can annie up the welfare system and child protective services system... all in the name of choosing life. What kind of life are they to choose if it were up to you? Until you've been in those girls' shoes at PP, you shouldn't judge.

Kudos to Crystal for saving the pups!

Too bad the animal control people are so slack. Why do they need a trap to leave there if Crystal can find them to feed and water them on a daily basis? Sounds like a big fat excuse to me. Slackers!

And Mr. Abandonment should be locked up and charged with any and everything they can charge his slack butt with too. It takes a cruel person to leave knowing puppies are out there to starve.

Apparently you do not have pets and if you do you certainly don't need one

What I don't understand is if the owners of their pets, whom they swore to take care of like they were family members, then why do they abandoned them. I bet they wouldnt do that to their own children whom they swore to take care of and provide for them.

This is not the first time Kershaw County Animal Control has been under fire. Why is something not done to make them more accountable for the actions or inactions? "Crystal" is hoping for a happy outcome for these dogs. Won't someone help.

Some people treat their pets better than their children.How many deadbeat fathers have abandoned their children?Lots of them.

how do u know i havent been in their shoes? judging? thats a joke. so if i seen someone holding a gun to your head, i shouldnt judge that either huh? there is a HUGE difference between judging someone and/or using common sense when something is clearly wrong. i guess common sense isnt too common, because you seem to lack it.

The man who abandoned the dogs needs to have charges brought against him. It was his duty, when he got the dogs, to find homes for them when he could not keep them. As usual, mankind does not take the life of an animal into consideration. What a jerk.

Kudos to "Crystal" and Pets Inc.! There are still people and organizations around who do the right thing. This is one more reason that all that money they are spending on a new home for abandoned animals to be partly administered by Richland and Lexington counties would have been better spent in a resource fund for private rescue organizations. These organizations seem to take their mission more seriously and any branch of government - federal, state, county, or municipality.

Dogs may not be human beings but they are beings...doesn't give anyone the right to treat them in a such an ill manner. These animals have a right to live too.
This article is about dogs not children.
