It's Not Rocket Science

Post by oneh2obabe »

Jesus H Christ folks, use the gray matter between your ears. If you can't look after your pets, find a home with someone who will. And if you insist on letting them live outdoors all year, make a damn winter shelter. Not difficult using a lidded plastic container and some old blankets.

“This time of year we see a sharp increase in the number of calls about domestic and farm animals who are distressed in outdoor situations,” said Eileen Drever, senior officer BC SPCA protection and stakeholder relations.

“One of the most common situations we encounter is dogs who are tethered outdoors in sub-zero temperatures. Animals are safest indoors, but if you must keep an animal outside, ensure shelter is off the ground, insulated from the cold and drinking water is not frozen.”

People who put animals in those kind of situations certainly aren't regarding them as "pets" - the owners are treating them like throwaways.
Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?

Some people are too stupid to have animals and should be banned from having them.
