    You guys love animals, but you'd rather see them destroyed then just giving them a good home

      Yes, I would rather see them destroyed by forcing them into an unhappy environment because I know I can't provide a good home, and I wouldn't want anyone else who also can't provide a good home to try anyway and end up fricking up the dog even more, or fricking up themselves/their children. Get it, moron? Sometimes euthanasia, even if the dog is healthy, is best.

      I've known several good families who wanted to adopt a dog but were turned away because their (fenced-in, decent-sized) yards were 'too small' or because their (4 bedroom) house was 'too small' or because only one member of the family had owned dogs previously they didn't have 'enough experience' to even adopt an elderly chihuahua.

        >$500+ 'recommended' donation
        That's called an adoption fee. At shelters I've seen adoption fees as low as $65. In any case, if you can't afford a $500 adoption fee, you shouldn't own a dog regardless. Vet bills alone cost much more than that.
        >several non-familial non-friend references
        Not required at shelters. Sometimes required at rescue orgs.
        >must have a garden at least half an acre big
        Not required at shelters. Sometimes required at rescue orgs.
        >must not work fulltime
        Not required at shelters. Sometimes required at rescue orgs.
        >must be able to afford only the most expensive kibble
        My two rescue dogs eat mostly raw meat, and it costs less than decent budget kibble. No one from the shelter knows or cares what my dfogs eat anyway.
        >must have neutered/spayed dog
        That's the law in most states, all shelter and rescue dogs must be spayed or neutered. Otherwise you end up like Texas, so many overburderned shelters that they need to export dogs to other states.
        >must be able to drop money on a trainer since most dogs up for adoption are traumatised
        Training a dog is a basic frickin' requirement of dog ownership you stupid homosexual.

          The county shelter where I live requires 10 non-familial references.

          Also you cant train your way out of trauma. The dog is a liability for life.

            A county shelter legally cannot turn down any applicant from adopting a dog. You're obviously just making shit up.
            >Also you cant train your way out of trauma. The dog is a liability for life.
            Most shelter/rescue dogs are strays, not relinquished. They're mostly normal dogs.
            Although my rescue Chow Chow was determined to be dog aggressive. Guess what? She's fine with my other dog.

    I was looking at it. The shelters are fricking insane. They want an application with references, veterinarian history from previous pets, and some even need a home inspection. Plus anything that isn't a pitbull or chihuahua has a $400+ adoption fee.

    >adopt a cat
    Sure, my previous cats were 10 year old siblings adopted from a shelter and they were great little guys.
    >adopt a dog
    No fricking way. A cat with behavioural issues is a nuisance, a dog with behavioural issues is a liability. There ain't no fricking reality in which I'll put myself on the line for some 'poor littol pupperrr' that's actually some 8 year old neurotic bully-mix. Frick off. I'm getting my dogs from reputable breeders. Breed-specific rescues at a push.

    I'm tired of these monsters neutering everything they get their hands on. It's a horrifying betrayal of our oldest friends, and I just want my animals to not be fricking mutilated. I don't give a shit about the consequences because as far as I'm concerned knowing one of my best friends has been forced to live a shadow of his own life is the worse consequence for me.

      The castration of animal "pets" is a barbaric practice motivated by the belief that it makes them more docile. It's a violation of their bodily autonomy and should be illegal.

    I love how the pic OP used are 2 animals you are unlikely or downright impossible to find in most shelters.

    You are not going to find happy golden retrievers or labradors or beautiful pedigree standard cats. You are going to get the total other end of the spectrum. You will find the most generic looking moggies or toms imaginable but with the kicker of having aggressive or neurotic personalities due to trauma or being semi-feral. Dog wise the best you will find are GSDs or terriers, the kind that need heavy training and rearrangement of your home to cater to their anxiety or psychosis. Otherwise wise someone is going to get bit or even killed. But this is just the best of the lot. You are most likely going to have cats that look like they have been pulled through a meat grinder and "American bullies" or "staffies" as far as your eyes can see with suspiciously tooth marked enclosure bars and walls marked with alarmingly deep paw grooves. Then there is the health difficulties. You are going to pay for not only a generally undesirable animal, but a mentally and physically ill one too. The adoption success stories you hear from are stories to begin with because of how rare people get so lucky being charitable with adopting animals. If you ask the majority of people who adopt it is like they are caring for a child with a disability and that they have to sacrifice so much to keep the dog/cat going apeshit or themselves.

    OP is a gay. Only adopt when you know of the risks and what the most likely outcome of living with a rescue will be.
