• Duplicate posted twice...sorry;)
  • Yup, Casey was a stray off the street. When we found her in our driveway during a thunderstorm she was about 4 months old and shaking like a leaf. We brought her inside and fed her, pulled off over 50 huge ticks from her coat, and took her to the vet. She had a broken tibia and fibula where someone had kicked her (at least that is what the vet thought), and she was very, very anemic (from all the ticks). Her leg had to be wired back together and she wore a cast for several months. Several years and several thousand dollars later, I can honestly say she was worth every penny...
  • Off the street and to the vet then to the pound. I used to bring them home after the vet but there is no more room for animals in my life.
  • My wife and I used to run a dog rescue out of our home. After the kids arrived there wasn't the time anymore. Our old website still exists though, and directs traffic to other active organizations in the area.
  • yep sure do.. and people too :)
  • Once. I let a beagle in the front door thinking mine had escaped, yet again, only to find out five minutes later he was a she and an extra. We fed her and let her sleep. When she woke up, she wanted out and ran off up the street. Most of the time I find cats.
  • Yes, we have taken in several stray dogs and some stray cats and found homes for them.
  • yep, once when I was 6, though it turned out to be a coyote.
  • No, but I have rescued a cat from a shelter and am in the process of rescuing a dog from a shelter. I do my research first and make sure the animal is going to be one I can love and adore completely and unconditionally until death do us part. Just any animal off the street isn't going to fit that criteria - it has to be one I would have wanted anyway even if I'd had to pay big bucks for him/her. I admire anyone who does take them in off the street though.
  • I haven't, but I probably would if I saw one I knew was definitely a stray.
  • 1-10-2017 Stray dogs don't even exist any more. Any pup, even a mutt, is worth a hundred bux now.
