Who the Hell is ‘’Deming Animal Guardians’’? I couldn’t help but notice that this ‘’article’’ was listed as ‘’ for ‘’ with no byline so I’m assuming it to be a press release from someone, and assuming again that ‘someone’ must be this D A G bunch? Just more nonsense from the Dimlight.

For one thing the D.A.G. help people that can't afford to pay for neutering/spaying their pets, think they help pay for some of that. And, as you can see, they come in handy for other things like taking rescued animals. They're a worthwhile organization and glad they're here to help. Whoever dumped that kitty deserves to be dumped somewhere themselves and left on a road, hope someone turns that person in.

Why are you coming down so hard on DAG? When I first read your comment I wondered if this wasn't your kitty? This town is full of animal abuse or neglect. People who treat their animals cruel treat their family the same way behind close doors.

I see both you and the Old Timer are posting from Texas so I’ll let you both share this reply :
I don’t know this particular ‘’rescue’’ bunch, but like most of such there is a buck to be made or they wouldn’t be in the business. It gripes my ass to see such group’s advertisements on TV complete with a heart felt music sound track begging for many to help ‘’rescue’’ dogs and cats. Just as it gripes my ass to see news space supplied for this grand cat in the sack of crap by this group.
Look, as we speak there are slit trenches being dug to bury entire families wiped out by war and/or famine, and yet these ‘’rescue’’ people are sipping off funds and news coverage for some damn cat? These animal rescue people remind me of the old Steve McQueen movie where he’s riding along in a stagecoach with some ‘’back east’’ gal. The stage passes by a group of Indians dressing out a dog to eat, and the gal gets huffy and teary eyed over the deal, and proclaims that she would ‘’never’’ eat a dog. Later on in the movie, she’s proved to be a liar. My point is this: we can continue to ‘’rescue’’ dogs and cats for eternity, or we can have meaningful animal control, and stop the problem before it exists. In the case of this cat in the sack, a notation in the police blotter would have done, instead of a pumped up press release from the DAG. I also find it a bit on the wild side that a $1000 reward is being offered to the person that rats the offended out, Hell they don’t offer that much for home invasion crimes.
So in the end I have a hundred bucks to spare. On one side I have a cat that needs ‘’rescuing’’. On the other side I have child standing by a slit trench, where the child will surly fall without food….where oh where will my hundred bucks go? As much as I love cats….I’m compelled to go with the child. Yes, it was a bad act the person did who at least supposedly put the cat in the sack and dumped it along the road. But even if proven to be the case, that act alone doesn’t mean that the person would do the same to a child as you suggest. I’ve killed, cut up and eat tons of livestock and game….and probably surprising for you, the thought of doing the same to a family member has never crossed my mind.

Don't let the city/state under someone's name on this Forum fool you. I have no idea who doe this, or why it's done, but I live in Deming, N.M. I'm with you on this $1,000 reward, makes me wonder if they offer, or even pay out, that amount for info/conviction of thieves, drug dealers, etc. Being an animal lover myself, I still would put human life over animals any time, but being this is a small town newspaper, pretty much any news fills the spaces. I'm not sure where the money comes from to operate D.A.G. or the Animal Shelter, maybe from the city/county or state. I noticed a 10 yrs. ago, when adopting a puppy from the shelter ,that the fee was $50.00 to take it home, and I'm sure they make money from that too. People often bring in bags of dry dog food and donate it, plus the employees at the shelter are paid, don't think they're volunteers.

Why doesnt this organization use this money to feed a kid thats going to bed hungry instead of worrying about a cat. I Hate Cats! and no I didnt put him in the sack so dont send me hate messages pertaining to the sacked cat. But there are more important things in this world that saving a damm cat.
Thanks

Very pleased to read your note here Old Timer. It feels like our summer is about over. While it certainly isn't chilly the morning air does have that crisp fall feel to it, have a great day.

I'm a member of Deming Animal Guardians so let me tell you about the organization.
- There isn't a "buck" to be made unless you know who did this cruel act. Deming Animal Guardians is an ALL VOLUNTEER organization with volunteers contributing their time and money to help animals. Sometimes people do good things just because they like to help others...not because there's money to be made.
- No one is saying that animals are more important than people or vice versa. We're all God's creatures.
- The reward money is NOT being offered by Deming Animal Guardians, but rather by Animal Protection of NM.
- If you'd like to find out more about what you can do to help, attend the Deming Animal Guardians Board meeting this Saturday at St. Augustine's church, buy a raffle ticket for support the group and possibly win a $500 gift card to Wal-Marts or volunteer to be part of the solution, instead of criticizing the selfless work of others.

I'm glad there's people like you helping the animals. I think another post said about people at the Animal Shelter getting paid,not you, we, or at least I, knew you were volunteers, and glad you're around. Hope you have a successful meeting and you sell a lot of raffle tickets.

One question......If you come across cats like the one in the burlap bag, or other animals people may have abandoned, where do the animals go after being rescued ? Do you take them to the shelter ? Just wondering.
