I have experienced rescuing and rehabilitating abused and homeless animals for over 30 years. Having said that, I have a growing concern over what I see happening with the practice of certain animal rescue organizations. It appears little or no regard is given for the welfare of the pet owners' safety or their property. A neutered cat that sprays, urinates, bites, claws is not fit for a family pet. Yet filing frivolous lawsuits when the pet owner does something the organization doesn't particularly agree with, deprives the pet owner of their rights. Since when do we treat animals with more respect than human beings?
Treating animals as humans in itself is inhumane. Have some of these people lost touch with reality? Animals need to be loved, respected, and properly guided and cared for as animals not people. Some of these practices have given me greater appreciation for the Brown County humane society, and their consideration for the prospective pet owner.
