there are a lot of homeless kitties and lost doggies who desperately need you to adopt or foster them, or else they'll start being killed next week...
... They aren't accepting applications from people outside a 25 mile radius of Manhattan

If they have to kill them all, I hope they don't go to waste. There are a lot of hungry people in NYC right now.

I couldn't imagine ever adopting someone else's dog. It's one thing to take a dog from a shelter that was probably abused in some way. But to adopt someone's dog, one that was loved and is probably missed like crazy right now... that's like.. I don't know. I was going to say it's like sleeping with another man's wife, but that doesn't even come close.

They need to adopt them quickly or they're gonna kill them? Fark them. Why not make an exception and hold them for a while so the people who lost them have a chance to get their pets back?

Just as a side item, people who put cute little costumes on their pets need to be on the receiving end of a sour kraut enema.

One of my friends had his house burn down thanks to Sandy. People got out mostly okay, but the pets didn't. I really hope these little guys don't have to die needlessly. And if you are nearby but not close enough, maybe you can get a closer friend to adopt then give you the pet?

I would have thought that the the littlest victims would be the rats. Millions and millions of sewer rats. Dogs have Sarah McLachlan, cats have Farkers. Who will be an advocate for Willard and Ben?

You can foster a dog where either the owner shows up to reclaim them, they get adopted when the owner never shows or you get attached and keep them when the owner never shows.

so the dogs look like they have people caring for them, they mostly look happy and cared for. then you have the cats, all of which look like they are waiting in line at some kind of pet auschwitz. you know, if you farking treated the cats the way you treat the dogs they might be more personable and easier to find homes for, but meh. i hate the 'look at these poor dogs - oh, yeah, we have cats back there somewhere, too' attitude of a lot of shelters

If I didn't have a 3 year old and a 1 year old I would definitely be considering this. Victor looks like an awesome dog but I just can't risk bringing an animal I didn't train in to the house right now.

This. When my friend had spare time she used to volunteer at a shelter for that very reason.

Something doesn't smell right about this article. The title says "Sandy-displaced dogs and cats" but when I clicked on the details for the first several animals they've ALL been in shelters well before the hurricane event hit. Some of them are acknowledged strays. These are not "Sandy-displaced" pets.

What this smells like is shelters trying to use the hurricane to push out animals they've had trouble adopting out. I'm sure there's a sense of urgency because they're now also dealing with actual lost pets, but the way they're going about this is deceitful.

As someone who has worked at a shelter, it's because the numbers simply aren't comparable. There are a fark ton of street cats, while street dogs get into the system far more often, because they're actually a safety concern. That being said, kill shelters are pretty much kitten slaughter houses.

Actually, recent estimates of the # of rats in NYC don't come to even a million; it's probably around the amount of about 300,000. Most of them live underground, and a lot of those probably drowned when the lower end tunnels flooded. The rest survived by getting to higher ground.

/wouldn't worry too much about the rats though

I had to stop volunteering at the local animal shelter because I couldn't take how many animals would end up getting put to sleep... specially cats...

I only managed to save a handful

/still donates money to the shelter tho...

That's why I help out at one of the non-kill shelters. Philly's animal control/rescue system is all kinds of wonked up right now, but it isn't because maliciousness, there's just not enough money or time.

Excess cats are best used as ground meat due to the stinginess of the meat.

See, I'd be willing to adopt that one if for no other reason than to get it away from the dumbasses that dressed it. Pet costumes are farking stupid, people! They look moronic and the vast majority of the time, the pet looks miserable in it. If you want to put one of those sweater covers on them because it's cold, that's fine but if you want to play dress-up with your pet, then buy some dolls!

Idiots.

I went and looked at the cats at our Humane Society once after donating some supplies to them (obviously with their sales pitch, 'oh why don't you go look around while you're here'). They were all adorable and I felt bad I couldn't adopt one at the time. Then I found out they don't actually allow people who rent their homes to adopt. So this same shelter whines and moans all the time about not having space, not having supplies, but they've cut out like a third to a half of eligible adoptions.
