I hope they find the scum bags who left these poor kittens and charge them with animal cruelty.

Its a shame though that the shelters want $200 or more to adopt a pet. That keeps many well meaning people from adopting an animal. I know it takes funds to operate the facility but when a person cannot afford to adopt then the animal stays there longer and costs more.

When you adopt a pet ,it has it's first shots and it is spayed or neutered, so in the long run ,it is less money. My mom got a free kitten last year, it ended up costing her close to $400.00by the time she was done with all the things you need to do.So unless you are willing to dole out some cash , don't bother getting a pet.

Ditto fhsmom! Most people don't realize that shelters are running on empty. Most don't get public money to keep them going and the vets and techs that work there are not volunteers in most cases. Ms Grady of the Sterling Animal Shelter leaves out the fact that if you call a shelter to take an animal, they expect you to pay them - average is $250 per animal. This is why people are abandoning vs turning them in.

I rescued 4 cats and 3 dogs. I have been paying for food, shots, exams, and illness expenses since the adoption. People who can not afford $250.00 can not afford an animal lifetime expences either.

So much resources wasted. So many empty houses and so many people homeless. This mortgage relief is just adds more corruption to the system. We 1000's of prisonners in this State alone costing each $32000. Why cant they work?
Maybe this would reduce our import and debt with China? Nobody in our office has any common sense or can't balance a budget. NOBODY. Rebublican Democrat Independent. They are all after power and don't care about the people one elected. This country is about to crash and no one is seeing this coming.
