Didn't you root for that dog to get better? Didn't you think that life was worth saving?
I know some people who would consider it a waste of resources to go to the moon and back for my OWN dog, which I absolutely would.
Honestly when the SPCA here pours thousands of dollars into a single dog that got kicked in the head by a deer it pisses me off, because they are spending valuable money to save that one dog.
Right now they are being evicted by the city out of their location because they decided they didn't want to run animal control anymore. WTF did they THINK was going to happen, did they really think the city was going to build new facilities to run animal control out of, and continue to rent to the SPCA? How does the city justify that? Had the SPCA not spent the multiple thousands to save five dogs they could perhaps have bought their own place and moved and not had to worry about it.
There are people outraged because the cit is taking their spot back, but the SPCA put themselves into this position, IMO.
