      are you nuts or just a troll?

      These hardworking people do their part for animals. Who could have a problem with that notion? The article fails to mention that they also started a Kibble On Wheels program, so that the seniors who receive Meals On Wheels won’t divide their one day delivery with their pets, out of necessity.

      These are good people, deserving of respect.

    Why do things like this seem to bring out the nut jobs? Helping animals is a good and worthy cause. I rescued a dog that had been used (and abused) for years as a puppy mill dog. He needed most of his teeth removed because they had become so rotten and infected that it had caused a bacterial infection through his whole body. He was very sick and in much, much pain. This procedure to remove teeth is long and expensive.
    These amazing people took these dogs, cared for them, and are socializing them into wonderful dogs. This helps the dogs as well as the people who adopt them. How on earth can someone find fault in that? These rescuers DO deserve respect. We will be donating items to the rummage sale. Kuddos to a job well done!

      Why do things like this seem to bring out the nut jobs? Because the nut jobs are losers. They are only concerned with their own miserable lives that no one else finds interesting. These are the same types that complain about anything and everything without offering any solutions.
