    Also, when I say "we" I mean the people that were there on our behalf. I wasn't there. I was in the office. But I have been there in the past and know what it's like. It SUCKS HARD.

    Should have seen the time there were abandoned rabbits. Wanna know how hard they are to catch? Try...impossible in a house full of piled stuff.

    Oh. And that one time there was a ginormous python in a wall sized glass cage. That was fun, too.

    They used to come get them back in the day. Then when the foreclosure crisis hit and the economy crashed we got down to one Animal Control officer for the entire city of 225K. So, there's no one to come out unless there is a vicious animal and it's an emergency.

    Could you reach out to a rescue group now, just to have a contact for if (sadly probably when) it happens again in the future? It can really help to have someone you know you can turn to - especially if you have a personal connection.

    We would, too, if we had money for them. But we don't. And I don't particularly want my taxes raised.

    As far as I know there really aren't any that are just "general" rescue groups that come out on short notice.

    We have bi monthly meetings with the police department and other area landlords and just last year this was discussed how we have no resources for this, and no one there knew of any and I feel like someone would have known of one, or animal control would know of current ones. The only place I know of that hasn't changed is the exotic animal place (who came and got the python).

    And honestly? I really do spend a huge chunk of my day providing resources to actual humans (despite me being on here a lot so it seems like I don't but I do spend a humongous chunk of my time getting potentially homeless people into homes). Keeping track of all those forever changing agencies is a big enough task, much less keeping track of which agencies take which animals (there is a pit bull rescue still going strong, but these weren't pits).

    So, first you had to kick them out, but then you say they ran out of the house before you could do anything? At least make an attempt to keep your story straight.
    So, basically you assume there is no one to help, so you don't even bother trying.

    Of course... hope someone else takes care of the problem rather than doing something yourself. How are you a pet owner and concerned about a cat that didn't have a home when you just put four neglected dogs on the street and you're making excuses for it?
    There is always a choice. You made your decision, so own it, if that's the person you are, but don't make a fucking excuse for it because that's just pathetic. There is always an option to do the right thing.

    The last time I ran into that I wrote in the comment field at the end of the survey (if there is one) stating what the consent form said. THey wrote back to me commending me for actually reading the consent form and sent the rest as a bonus.
