    Why on earth would you say that? First off, there is no "SPCA"; all animal shelters are independently run and operated and most are not affiliated with any others. I happen to work for an animal shelter and I am not a psycho and neither is anyone I work with. The people I work with and those I have met from other shelters are people doing a very hard job for very little pay trying to make a terrible situation better in anyway that they can.

    Trying to help the homeless, abused and unwanted animals discarded on a daily basis in the US does NOT make us psychos, though we deal with many and their handiwork on a daily basis.

    the dog was blind and deaf - but he must have still made noises - like breathing, no?

    depending on the car - how do you miss an animal in your car?

    well, if she often took the dog to work with her as the article states, then i would think she would have asked about him, or looked for him or something along those lines..

    yeah they were hoarders of their animals, they barely adopted any out. instead they sat around all day gossiping to each other about their pets and barely helping people who came in to adopt or look around. i saw more ppl angrily walk out of the store up in arms than happily with a new pet

    Sounds odd, Alice. But like I said, most shelters are not affiliated with any other shelters. "SPCA" and "Humane Society" are not copywrighted and can be used as an organization name by anyone. The SPCA in the story, for example, is the Richmond SPCA. There's a San Francisco SPCA, a Maryland SPCA, etc. all of whom operate independently.

    Trust me; most of us in animal welfare are MORE than happy to talk just about anyone into considering adopting a shelter pet!
