    Am I the only one who CRIES when those ASPCA commercials come on? Or the Pedigree ones with the shelter dogs? [​IMG] I have to change the channel or I start bawling!

    Oh good..I'm glad I'm not the only one !

    There was a commercial on this morning showing different pictures of dogs and then it would have words like: BEATEN (with a picture) and then STARVED (with a picture) and "LEFT TO DIE" (with a picture)--OMG! [​IMG]

    Those places make me sick.

    You notice that they always talk about you donating, but never about the adoptions that should be happening.

    When I donate to a rescue, it is one that I know wants to adopt out the animals to good homes and is not all about the almighty dollar. You know that CEO is paid as is probably the endorsing actors.

    Yeah...don't really even have a local shelter--the nearest no-kill is pretty far away and I've gotten three cats from them.
