So whats the animal control officer to do if there is really no place to put the animals? They are our responsibility, Now, with the economy tanking, this is going to become one of the biggest, problems for us. People with land or buildings that are vacant, need to step up and help. Nonody wants this, but, if faced with feeding your family or the dog.... I guess that is what is happening. Plus, people having to move, probably to places where pets are not welcome. This county can do better then this. Come on.

I agree with you Sharen 100%. I still hope that they get the help they deserve. I can not see giving up my dog even if I couldn't afford to feed him/her I'd still do whatever it took to keep my dog.

My animals will be with me no matter what. Most don't care whether they have them. Why bother if you don't treat them like one of the family. Noted with thanks Brabcat.

Every county should have an animal shelter, that should be a law! I hope that these wonderful people get the help they so desperatley need. These animals need evey chance they can get.
