How can a person give away an animal that is part of the family? I just cannot comprehend the logic of it.

I must admit that it cast me a small fortune to move all the animals and livestock and that is not taking into account all the vaccines, calming medications. Etc.but not even a chick was left behind

These types of individuals are low-life scumbags !
It is beyond my comprehension how anyone claiming to have and love their pet to abandon them in this manner!! How cruel and heartless!
