Let's hope the punishment fits the crime.

About five years ago, when people here in Phoenix were losing their go on the streets with their little children, there were newspaper articles about people who were just taking their dogs out on the roads
and leaving them their. I had nightmares about the doggies running after the cars, vehicles soon to be lost also, and the children crying. I could vision the hard, stern faces of the parents with the tears rolling down their cheeks.

I was homeless, renting a room from an angry person who was losing his job. There was nothing I could do.
I was facing the streets myself.

But there were people who could and did do something. Many of the dogs were picked up by people in a better condition than those who had FELT they had no choice but to abandon their pets. Of course the shelters were turning away animals, There was no room. Some folks just tied their animals to a fence and left them there for the shelter people to handle.

It was a sad, sad time.

All I could do was pray.

I did.

Sometimes, when we don't know the heartbreaking facts, it is too easy to condemn.

Phoenix is in a better condition now. But there are still the homeless with children.

yes THEY DO!
Live about as far as you can go in this desert without being an Indian.
12 Weeks ago a "Pin_Pin came up to our house with a Cholla Pod stuck on her nose.
Two days later she had 4 pups.
For as much advocacy as I hear on this site,
I never heard anything from a one of you. I adopted them on my own. It hurts financially.
I feel better not needing you.

Time to fit the crime- though execution is the better solution.

Noted. She should be punished to the fullest extent. If you want to surrender your pets, there is no reason why you can't take them to a no-kill shelter. At least they would have a chance there. Setting them loose in the desert would of killed them!

We have been told that when we take from nature we should replace it. The dogs were taken from the desert so could we replace them by staking her out?
