There is nothing funny about the commercial. Perhaps take your quarter and take a bus to your nearest shelter to see the animal victims of overpopulation and neglect that are shamelessly killed each day because of ignorance, apathy and stupidity.....to the tune of MILLIONS every year.

The sad state of affairs in this country is that too many people see what is on TV and ignorantly allow it to shape their opinions and actions.

Interesting that you would take a my comment as an opportunity for a personal attack rather than someone who sees something they don't agree with and voices an opinioin.

There are plenty of people that care about animals and go out of their way to help them; and they choose to do business with companies that are respectful of them. How people and companies treat others, including animals, says a lot about character, just as you have done.

I can't help it if there are too many weak minded people that would take that commercial seriously. And I doubt that you would find a single living soul that would suddenly decide NOT to take an animal in after seeing that commercial.

Just so you know...

We have 2 animals. The first is a 6 year old Tom cat. When we bought our house in Ayden there was a stray female cat that hung around. We couldn't even get close to this cat but she insisted upon living at our house. She would occasionally bring us her litters of kittens that she kept having. We tried desperately for 2 years to capture this cat and have her fixed. One day she brought us what was apparently her sole surviving kitten from the latest litter. It was a tiny grey furball. Unlike the other kittens that would freak out and hiss and spit if you got close to them this little furball took to us immediately. He couldn't have been much older than 2 or 3 weeks.

We still have that little furball. He has turned into a 14 pound beast that is just as lovable as can be. We did have him neutered as soon as he was old enough. He's not fat, just LARGE. We eventually were able to trap his mother and have her spayed.

Our other animal is a border collie. She too was a stray. Someone dumped her at a house over in High Point. We drove over there to pick her up since the people that "found" her could not keep her. She was about 7 months old when we got her. We also had her spayed as soon as we could.

I am a huge advocate of taking care of your animals and spaying and neutering. It desperately breaks our hearts to see the cruelty of people in this world when it comes to animals. We are aware of what happens in the local shelter since it is a kill shelter.

My husband and I are currently trying to help someone find a good home for a 2 yr. old, male American Eskimo before they take him to the Shelter. We even have a friend in Atlanta that might be interested because they have another AE. We have an 8 yr. old Samoyed that is taken care of like the "Princess" she is.
