exvaxman: Unless there was a really good reason, this sort of thing really upsets me.The shelter we volunteer at had a cat left there by a family that was moving. He has been with the family for over ten years. When you went in to visit him, he would just curl up in your lap and purr. If I hadn't had two cats already.... how can a family abandon a pet?
elvisaintdead: Update 8/2/14: On Saturday, Sasha was adopted!
FriarReb98: How the fark do you do that? How do you abandon a pet you've had over ten years? Hell, my mom's dog drives me nutty sometimes, and it can be annoying when plans need to be changed to take care of her twice-daily needs (diabetes & other stuff), but there really is nothing I wouldn't do to make sure she was with our family in one way or another until the day she crosses the bridge.
gremlin1: My local Humane Society has been known to adopt out elderly dogs for no fee especially if the dog has health issues.
