I really disagree with this comment! Yes, the mods do curtail offensive posts, but I have had many good, & often controversial discussions on here & also fun, silly discussions. However, I think when it comes to dogs in rescue it is obviously a sensitive subject, for those of us who have rehabilitated a rescue dog (I have had 2) it's no joking matter. Rescues have a hard enough job placing animals in suitable places, they can do without idiots taking the piss to be Frank!!!Funny. But this will probably be your first and last post. The moderator here wants to maintain a kumbaya atmosphere. No room for frivolity or challenging the status quo.
Agreed- shelter workers have one of the most emotionally taxing jobs and to waste their time like this is disrespectful and callous. I didn't find the racism funny either.I don't find it funny at all.
The people at shelters are tasked with a very difficult job of finding proper homes for animals. Sometimes, dogs end up in terrible homes and I'm sure the shelter VOLUNTEERS feel awful about placing them. This caller, whether it's you or not, took up the time of this shelter. Valuable time that could have been spent speaking with a serious adopter.
Aside from those factors, to bring race up in this fashion only perpetuates the stereotypes and the racism in this country.
Nothing about this is funny.
