Also, yes, get your pets microchipped. At least put a farking collar on your dog.

First off, Buster? Really? Might be better for him to be put down than live with a family that would name their dog Buster.

Second, that was a great story.

Third, FTFA: In November, a plane transporting 60 dogs and cats displaced by Sandy arrived in San Diego, the Associated Press reported. The animals, which might have been put down, were taken to a local shelter, where they were scheduled to be prepped for adoption.

WTF? These animals are parts of people's farking families and instead of keeping them in the area where they might be reunited you farking fly them all the way across the farking country? What kind of organization does that? Totally ruins the happiness from a story of one dog being reunited with his pack.

Prolly didn't have the room... so it was kill them or ship them out. At least they're still alive, so if the dip-shiat, non licensing, non micro chipping Guidos find them on the interwebs they can have them shipped back.

I've never heard of this "microchipping", so, how does that work? You implant a chip into the dog's brain so that you can then use a remote control to operate the dog? Seems kind of inhumane.

I understand that local shelters might not have the room, but it's a total of 60 animals. There are shelters in Connecticut, PA, MD, etc. - not to mention foster families - that aren't thousands of miles away that could support an extra pup or two for a few weeks while their people get their shiat together. To fly them to San Diego instead seems completely arbitrary and cruel.

yo would say "holy fark" right out loud if you knew how many shelters exist in each state you mentioned. it's ridiculous how many irresponsible shiat for brains don't spay or neuter pets. then there is puppy mills and untold amounts of a-holes who think dog breeding is easy-peasy. it's sad how packed the shelters usually are. no-kill shelters and out of state is often the final chance. worse is retard states like Mississippi where animals don't stand a damn chance because of poverty and how piss-poor folks treat each other, much less animals. not picking on MS it's just the truth.

Mike Chewbacca: At least put a farking collar on your dog.


I walk the dog in my robe in the mornings. Hey, I'm legally covered, and wearing boxers. Anyway, my pooch recently pulled the classic "pull backwards until the collar and leash slip off" maneuver, and I had to run down a major street in said robe and flip-flops. Took me 10 minutes to secure him again. That little sonofab*tch can really move.

Animal shelters barely have room to house animals during normal conditions. That's why they're typically put down within 2 weeks of being caught. The fact that we're willing to ship these dogs cross country and keep them alive for and additioanl 2 or 3 months is actually a good thing.

I live in Denver and I recall we had large population of Katrina dogs. The owners were given several weeks to claim them before they were made available for adoption. The high profile nature of the storm, increased the odds that the dogs were adopted and not euthanized.

The fact that the owners had about *7* weeks to claim the dog in he age of internet and he was only a few miles away in Brooklyn, says more about their own disorganization than it does about animal rescue services.

Have you tried the wrap the leash around the midsection trick? Worked wonders for my dog who hated his harness. Plus he doesn't pull anymore. You just need to use a long leash to do it.

Same thing happened after Katrina.  There's a documentary on Netflix streaming (last time I looked) about the dogs that were shipped all over the country, adopted out to new families, meanwhile their owners were looking everywhere for them.  Lawsuits and other fun happened after people finally tracked down their pets after they'd been adopted out to new families.

Lots of dogs were displaced after Katrina because the farking databases that held the microchip data went down and were never recovered. What a farking clusterfark that was!

That's pretty good advice. Will try it later this morning. I should probably start wearing pants and real shoes on his walks, too. But as a TFer, you know how I feel about having to wear pants.

It is, but damned if it ain't funny to watch a dog walk backwards with a blinking light bulb on its head at a party.

Mine? Damn documentary had me slobbering for the duration of the movie and then an hour after as I hugged my dog, who had no idea what was going on and isn't much for cuddling and hugging. I felt for the original owners and the people who adopted the dogs. There was no good solution to any of it.

Need a dog? Come to LA to adopt.
Let's see, we Pitbulls & Chihuahuas . Or if you prefer, we have some Chihuahuas & Pitbulls. Not seeing what you're looking for? Well over here, we have some pitbull mixes and some Chihuahua mixes. No? You must not be a dog person.

For every exciting story you hear about animals being sent to rescues in other parts of the country and for every story you hear about one or two people out of the hundreds suing to get their pet back, there are thousands who shrug and say, "Oh Mittsy 'ran away' during the storm. Oh well."

Giving the pet owners the benefit of the doubt does not work. This is why animal shelters in my community spay/neuter and microchip all the animals going out to adoptions. If an animal is too young to be spayed or neutered, it's fostered until it's large enough.

FTFA "After the superstorm had ruined the O'Donovans' house in Belle Harbor, Queens, damage assessors visited the home in mid-November, spooking away the ridgeback-shepherd mix, according to the station"

If the house was ruined, WTF was the dog doing there if they had evacuated? Must be because dogs are necessary for damage assements.
