oukewldave: "the would-be owner must "not [be] severely mentally ill," not be a hoarder, not have a history of violence, and be "seeking treatment if they have addictions," the newspaper reported."Pretty sure no one is getting a dog. Isn't that every homeless person?

Macular Degenerate: The ignorance of what it means to be homeless is so rampant in this thread, it makes me want to go punch something.
drjekel_mrhyde: City full of homelessexuals./Isn't this the city that banned pet stores?
Gotfire: I really enjoy visiting San Francisco, but man you guys have a seriously bad homeless problem there. It's seriously over the top in your face panhandling every farking where.
Durendal: How's that going to help the homeless? One puppy will only satisfy them for a few hours. Then they'll be hungry again.
drjekel_mrhyde: Macular Degenerate: The ignorance of what it means to be homeless is so rampant in this thread, it makes me want to go punch something.Punch a homeless guy
Popo Bawa: Total fail.Hobo and dog poop together all over the streets.Great.Who came up with this idea?Clearly they view dogs as disposable or throwaway commodities to service their needs and nothing more.Who's going to properly train these dogs?The mentally ill or addicted homeless who can't be trusted to take care of themselves?How does this city have the funds to pay for this program and especially pay for employees to follow up on people in the program?How about money for spaying, regular yearly booster shots and monthly heartworm pills?Costs me several hundred for the pills and the shots every year, so that would blow past their regular budget.Whoever came up with idea seriously needs to be shown the door and given a swift kick in the ass on the way out.
skantea: DNTR the whole thing, but I assume that they are talking about people with chronic depression who simply need the structure and benefit of taking care of a living thing. Not the schizophrenic, yelling at cars, high on meth/crack/heroine homeless.As an ex San Franciscan (born there as well) I know that not all hobos are created equal. Some just need a teeny tiny reason to live.
Generation_D: This is pretty damn cruel to do to the dogs.I see some of the gutterpunks in Seattle walking up streets near my home with dogs, and my first thought is "poor dogs, your people suck at life."
