I like the concept. Even went so far as trying to rehome a rescued dog, Used to donate regularly.
however after being told by one of these organisations that I am not a reponsible dog owner i started to rethink the value of my donations.
As for not being responsible I got a mixed breed from a backyard accident(byb?) She's now vaccinated, micochipped, desexed and never seen a flea or tick.
Whist I was in hospital she did an ACL and I had the option to put her to sleep because its not cheap to operate.This never entered my mind so she had the operation. Unfortunately as with being a larger breed whilst recovering from the operation and the weight being transfered to the other leg she did a second ACL, Two days out of the hospital out of work 6mths they gave me the same choice. Guess what I chose YES THATS RIGHT THE OPERATION. She was 4yrs old then she is now 8yrs and still chasing rabbits(had to stop a dog doing this on a 50 acre bushblock without chaining them up).
I know that they have a reposnibility to put them into good homes BUT please do not judge on what the person looks like.
One more thing to the lady in perth at the peasholm st dog beach thankyou, you have inspired me to take extra bags along the beaches and pick up others poo aswell. Its a vauable resouce our dog beaches.
