A lot of people told me not to go back to petfinder.com, but i didn't listen but now i am never going back and here is one of the reasons. http://www.petfinder.com/messageboard/viewtopic.php?p=409964#409964 These people are very obsessed with rescuing animals. Oh oh and whoever reads this please got to the topic My Emergency List and read it.
? I don't understand your question or why you don't like the forum. I really didn't read the responses ..just looked at pictures. All the colors and graphics are distracting to me. I like this forum because it is simple text. You cant modify the color and font size etc. The pictures are funny. The one of the dog grabbing the ball is priceless! LOL!
ok, petfinder.com is a very very obsessed place with rescuing animals and one thing about breeders thay go off on you. And well I said that i go on Auspet and another website(i asked if you can guess and no one did, it was terrificpets.com) And well someone was all like oh Auspet encoureges breeders. It gets really annoying because i got Nala from a breeder and everytime they go to me how is your Labradoodle, and i always say its a Labrador.But my point was that they just take rescuing animals way way way too seriously.
LOL! Agreed. However, I learned something. I didn't know petfinder had a forum. You should not be surprised at the petfinder advocacy. It is very much a website dedicated to rescue and adoption only. It is not a breeder forum.
It is not an obsession. That is the purpose of the www.petfinder.org. That is their mission. You go to a rescue website and the forums will be about rescue. The entire website is dedicated to for and about rescue and adoption. Everything on the site discusses rescuing, adoption, donating to rescue and adoption so forth and so on. I think it is a wonderful site for people interested in adopting. It gives you local, regional, national contact information and pictures. You can narrow your search by the breed, size, type of animal etc. and the articles are great. I like the site for information. Honestly, I didn't know there was a forum. I always look at the pictures of the dogs. If you go to a breeder website ... the forums will be about breeding and people wanting to buy presumably purebred dogs perhaps crossbreeds and if you go in there and talk about rescue you will get bood and hissed out by a large percentage of the crowd. This forum is a perfect example. There is a lot of people in here who are disgusted by the thought of owning a mixed breed dog and certainly not one from a shelter. These same people get very upset when you even think of saying ANY breeder could possibly be a puppy miller. There is nothing wrong with you. Petfinder.org is not the culture you are looking for.
I do my shelters Petfinder site. And yes, we are obsessed with adoption and rescueing. Why because we also get to see the animals in person. And many more who we can't put online. In California, In many of the shelters the animals get their three days and are put down after that, MANY of the animals are kept in back rooms and never even get a chance to be seen by the public. I luckily, live where my shelter can keep animals for a longer time, we have had animals in our shelter for up to a year and still had them adopted. I breed, but I chose a breed that I love and that is not overwhelming in my area. Pomeranians are hard to come by here, well, any that are of good quality. In our shelters I can count on 1 hand how many Pomeranians have been in the shelter in the last two years. I do breed, but I also do rescue and foster care for my shelter mostly to a breed which is not like that much here, the Chow Chow. Petfinder is a site made purposely and solely for rescue and adoption. If you go on there, chances are the same as here, even I suggest rescue first, and if you don't want to rescue or adopt then I am going to give and support any information I can on finding a good breeder. I believe everyone should suggest rescue first, because that is where the need is first. If not, Education, even if it is blunt, on how to find a good breeder and the questions that should be asked, should be told.
Excuss me? Am I reading this wrong? Do you not like rescueing animals? This is seriously STUPID! How DARE you say them to be "Too obsessed" with rescueing animals! I am obsessed with rescueing animals MORE then the website, so that was an INSULT to me! >:o Animals are like people, and I see them as worth a bit more then them. So stop insulting them! Animals deserve to be rescued just as much as a human does! Thats horrible what you are saying Hector! Let people have their opionons on things instead of insluting them!
