1. Hey y'all,

    Just as a quick reminder, the forum is not a place to discuss hot topics like religion & politics & all those things that make people cranky. With that said, in light of how much news is coming directly from politicians and the fact a lot of folks come here as their daily watercooler I want to note sharing news/information is totally understandable/welcome (as long as it's not chem trail conspiracy theories or homoerotic frogs).

    However, please leave the commentary/opinion out of it. There is no room in my massive stockpile of hand sanitizer for hot takes.

    Love you all dearly, wash your hands before touching the daily thread, and consider this your "how we're keeping you safe" e-mail from TV. Thanks.

    Oh, damn. That all sucks. I don't get it, I really don't. I know I'm being super-judgey but, I mean, WTF?! Just sad.

    Isn't there a nearby rescue you can at least call? If not in your city, maybe a surrounding city? Placing four neglected and scared dogs on the street is not only a horrible situation for them, it's a public safety issue, as well. I understand if you're not comfortable dealing with them, but surely someone could help. At the very least, volunteers within a 20-mile radius would likely show up as quick as possible to help transport them to animal control, if that's the only option. I've had calls in the middle of the night to drive to less than desirable neighborhoods over an hour away to assist with dogs, and I never hesitate. Volunteers with animal rescues and shelters are pretty dedicated and eager to help. I'm sure someone near you would assist. Even if you explained the situation now, they could at least help get them off the street. It's bad enough for the dogs to be left by their owners, but now they're out on the street. Sorry, for being a straight up Grinch here, but that's fucked up. Not completely your fault, but those dogs deserve better.

    I've been having a ... furious debate with some of my "radical" "R" friends about "socialism," so I've been looking up a lot of data. I think you're probably right (or @Kayashi was): I was posting "off the cuff": my apologies. :)

    To my knowledge there is not. But they ran out of the house and far away before we could corral them up anywhere to call anyone anyway. We had to get them out of the house to get into the house.

    Trust me, we are sick over this and hope someone calls them or a neighbor takes them in.

    Totally not our fault. We didn't abandon them and to get in we had to get them out and they took off. I'm sick about it, but I also know there is no one for me to call who will come get them out of the house on short notice. (And legally, we HAVE to get in and document the contents. There is a legal requirement we do so and that we secure the house or the people that abandoned their stuff and their dogs can flat out sue me if someone gets in through an unlocked door or window after we have been given back possession of the house by the sheriff's office.)

    There are some aspects of my job that I hate, and this is one of them, when I'm powerless to do anything despite it seeming like I should be able to do something.

    I used to work for an animal shelter who was partnered with Animal Control in our town. Far too many situations like this where people just leave pets behind. We always went and got them but I'm sure the resources are different here. I still have nightmares from the things we found and even talking about this makes me cry. People suck.

    An error in the address might cause people to return. Changing the ampersand in the web address to a question mark fixes it though.
