Unfortunately the SPCA isn't much better. Instead of spending much needed money on spay/neuter program they spend thousands of dollars on a single dog to send it to PEI. Pathetic. Prevention would be better.
A real animal lover
When this comment came in, I wanted to chew on nails. Especially the last line. When people say shit like that, that always gets my goat. "Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others." That person saying that makes their previous comment make more sense, don't you think? "A real animal lover" Obviously an animal lover of only perfect animals, though. But I digress. The 2 pictures below are of a boxer that was left for dead on the side of a road - Nellie - who was fostered by a good friend of mine - Lisa who owns Delta and Oscar who you see every once and a while on this blog, was a beneficiary of some of those "thousands of dollars" that are "wasted on a single dog".
Those "thousands of dollars" come from a fabulous thing set up by the Nova Scotia SPCA called the "Cinderella fund" - it's a completely separate chunk of money - and fundraising is also done separately - so it's not taking any money at all from spaying and neutering - all it's doing is saving the lives of dogs like Nellie, and other very worthwhile animals.
Look at the first picture of Nellie. She's very close to dead. Look at the second picture. She's very much alive. The Cinderella fund, Lee Anne Tibbo, the Dartmouth Veterinary Hospital, Lisa Davis, Lisa Murphy - who spearheaded the Cinderella fund - and countless other people helped that "one" animal. And I think it was worth it.
All life is precious. I can only hope that someone would do it for one of my animals if they needed it. Wouldn't you hope that they'd do it for one of yours if they found it abandoned on the side of the road?
