The local animal shelter recently raised prices unreasonably high for this area. As an animal lover and a supporter or rescue agencies, it seems ridiculious to raise prices to an extent which is equal to what it would cost to buy from a breeder! Also, drop boxes are insane. Can people just drop off there pet? is there no video cameras to see who the original owner was? Every night I fight the urge to go to the drop box and take a puppy home or to find one of the animals a nice home they deserve. I would gladly take those animals, worm them, and if I knew how, give them the shots and find them the proper owner. Plus, it is so easy to take animals to something like Walmart, Petsmart, the flea market and find them a home I'd like to say "just give them to me because someone out there wants them"
