You obviously need the love of a good animal, but I doubt you have any love to give an animal. Stay away from the SPCA. Stay away from everyone and every animal until you learn how to love.
For the record I have a wonderful animal, whom I love! I like him a lot better than people that are phony. The people in this area Of alabama...oh yeah that's right this is PA! Sorry I didn't know that because of all the holy roller's that think they should judge everyone because they are all saints, don't you know. Hmmm sounds like you, are you from here? What a joke, they don't know how to run a town and they sure don't know how to care for animals. You know the one's they shoot for fun! I am sorry but if you kill an animal for fun then you are no better! Everythingis a popularity contest here and if you weren't born here and your cousin's mother isn't married to your brother then you don't fit in and they screw your life up! I have seen it happen to many people in this area! For the record my children volunter at the animal shelter, because we love animals. Apparently you didn't understand what I was talking about when I made the statement. I was not saying that in this particular case the animals shouldn't have been removed. I am also not saying that any animal deserves to be mistreated! I am simply saying these people would say the sky is orange just to hurt you if you have an argument with one of their childhood buddies! There is no innocent person in this area, they want the cash to much!

I don't know what people you have been around, but I am a transplant to this area and I've not found the people here to be that way.

Some sure, but that is true for any place.

People are people no matter where you are, sorry you seem to be having such a hard time.

people seem to be more concerned about the cost of adopting a pet. Shelters and the SPCA need to be funded somehow. If i have to pay $250 to adopt a pet that's fine with me. That money goes towards helping these organizations save the animals. Besides, what is $250 for a pet? You will be spending a lot more than that to give them a good home assuming you plan on doing so. Anyhow...they should lock these people up in a closet and feed them a few times a week. Do that to the animals and you get that in return. It would feel awesome for those people to be treated the way these dogs were and i wouldn't feel one ounce of sorry for these people. It would make me smile

Please see my message below...again, I have seen prices as high as that (if you look on petfinder, you will see many shelter pets where the adoption fee IS as high as $200-$350). But Adams County is NOT one of them. I once again apologize for spreading mis-information...it was never my intent...just what I wrongly believed after a long search for my dog 2 1/2yrs ago that included looking at MANY shelters that were expensive and did require fences...in the heat of the moment, I wrote that post without first double checking...Sorry!:-)
For some strange reason, I apparently had the same thing in mind. I was pretty sure that a couple years ago, someone at the agency (at that time called the Adams Co. SPCA) told me that a yard was needed for dogs and the costs seemed higher than what was quoted by the staff member posting above. Perhaps things changed or maybe a former employee was misinformed.? Or maybe you and I just both got confused. But, yes, for some reason, I was under the EXACT same impression as you regarding costs and yards. I do love the ACSPCA, though. We have two adorable cats that we got from them and they are wonderful!

I am also not from here, moved here 6 years ago...unfortunatley! 99.2% of the people I have encountered since I have been here are like that. Only they are nice to your face while jamming knives in other's back's. All while claiming to be holier than thou, while judging you. I wish you lot's of luck with your experience's here. I am waiting until my son graduate's and I am moving back to Boston. People might not be great there either but atleast they are real. Not real phony, as my experience's here have led me to believe no one around here is like that. My doggie loves it up there too...the dirt is real good for digging, and he loves the snow:) Good luck!

So long! Hope your doggy enjoys a good dirt nap in that wonderful Boston soil. And stop putting all those apostrophes in every plural word form (backs, graduates, experiences). They don't belong there. Guess they didn't teach you that at MIT or "Havvad". How's that for being "real"?

The York county SPCA has required fences but only for certain breeds of dogs. This is to help prevent the animal from getting away and ending up stray and so on. While the costs might seem high, people will spend that much and more to but a puppy from a pet store that may have gotten their stock from puppy mills. The cost at the shelter also includes more than just the animal, but also shots,medical care, microchipping and spaying and neutering.

Putting down the unwanted dogs is much more humane than killing their spirits by making the SPCA a revolving door for them. Don't knock the SPCA! Support them!
No, there are other choices and I would rather give my financial support to rescues and shelters that are no kill shelters.

I have heard that YCPSCA can be a little strict with their guidelines, but I truly believe it is to prevent dogs from being returned to them when it doesn't "work out" or when they are too much work. HOWEVER, I have family members who foster dogs for a dog rescue and the rescues do NOT require fenced in yards. If you would have taken the time and gone to Petfinder.com you could have found a wonderful dog needing a loving home. Buying from a breeder is the WORST possible thing you could have done and the dog cost 3 times what it would have cost if you rescued one instead.
I DID search Petfinder for months! As the mother of 4 children, I was very careful as to the type of dog that I wanted. I did a lot of research. Unfortunately, the majority of the dogs that my local SPCA's had at the time were pit bull/mixes. Now I know there are plenty of people who will say that pit bulls are wonderful dogs etc, but that's just one breed that I am particularly leary of (especially with 4 kids!) and I chose not to go that way. Other dogs were either too old, needed special care and/or couldn't be around kids or cats (which I have) And if I did find a dog on Petfinder (and any other website I could find) that I liked, it was often too far away. And a lot of shelters won't let you adopt if you are from another state (unless it is a bordering state where they may still be able to check in with you ocassionally). Plus I would have had to pay for shipping.
And I also believe 100% that buying from a breeder is NOT the WORST possible thing I could have done!! I ended up buying the PERFECT dog FOR OUR FAMILY! And from a very nice lady that I have kept in contact with and would buy from again in a heartbeat! Not all home breeders are horrible puppy mills! Some people really do just love their breed of dogs and want to share them with others. And btw, you have NO idea whether or not I paid 3 times as much! But I WILL tell you that yes, I paid a little more than I might have at the shelter but it wasn't even double the cost, let alone 3 times. And to be totally honest, I didn't mind a bit paying a little extra in order to get the dog that was perfect for our family. To me, having a dog that was going to fit into our family and our lifestyle was the most important thing.
I would've loved to have gotten a shelter dog! But the perfect dog for our family just wasn't at the shelter during the time that we were looking...I'm sure there are many of you that will say that couldn't have happened and that there is always a dog for every family at the shelter but I don't believe that...otherwise I would have gotten one.

I hope, if you haven't already adopted that you can find a rescue to adopt. I think they are fabulous and the love of my life; Walker; was in fact the most perfect specimen of lovable dog that could ever be found world wide and enriched my life so much more than I did his, of this I am sure!

I ended up buying a 6 month old puppy from a private breeder who is absolutely the BEST dog in the world! Our entire family (6 of us plus a foreign exchange student) loves her to death and she has been a wonderful addition to our family!
I've often thought about getting a second dog but my husband won't let me...he says our house is crazy enough! haha

Honestly, I didn't know we were in english class...so sorry! Not everyone goes to MIT or Harvard, however I can say the people in Boston are a lot smarter than the people in PA. They actually have laws that are from this century, with penalty's to match! Thanks for the send off though! June can not come fast enough!

I've lived in my house in Pa for 11 1/2yrs and my neighbor across the street has never even made eye contact with me, let alone waved or said hi. And there have even been times that I have been at the road getting my mail and they've walked or jogged right past me and kept their eyes averted which does put a damper on any attempts I may have made to say hi. It's wierd. Luckily that kind of behavior hasn't been the case with everyone I've met but it is more common than I would prefer...

You don't believe in spaying/neutering? With all the animals being put to death and filling our shelters you think spaying/neutering shouldn't be done?
Unless you are a reputable breeder all animals should be spayed/neutered!
<quoted text>
I respect your opinion, but I do not feel it is right to subject animals to unnecessary surgeries. I have had dogs for the last 14 years that have not been spayed or neutered and have never fathered/mothered puppies because I am a responsible pet owner and know where my animals are at. Maybe if you are an irresponsible pet owner it would be necessary, but I don't think it is necessary in every case.

It is a shame you are not one of those "smarter" people from Boston. You were not even bright enough to take my little tip on when to use apostrophes. It is "penalties", not "penalty's". You are an apostrophe catastrophe. At this point, I'm not sure Boston will let you back in - or "your little dog, too", as they say in the Wizard of Oz. You should consider a move to Alabama. They have great soil, and I'm sure your dog would enjoy taking a dirt nap down there.
