  • 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


    fark you subby, and fark me for clicking on that link. :(
  • Tasty with some tamari sauce and fresh ginger.

  • DId subby self-apply the HERO tag?
  • If I lived there I'd take some, but alas I am too far.

    I love animals.
  • I'd really like to help out and do something. Is there a Facebook page for this that I can like?
  • 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.
  • Not going anywhere near this bastard.

    Its ready to kill.
  • 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.

    erm WTF - did the dog bring a photo album, or is that a hurricane survival outfit?
  • Great way to wake up subby...
  • 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.

    I has a sad.


    Fixed :)
  • 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.

    Poor animals.....

    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.
