I agree dumping animals would be a problem, but in reality, its a problem everywhere. I know when i was in university I spent less time in class than I do at the office now, and went out as many evenings as I do now also - does this mean I am not a good kitty mommy now? I left my cat at home, but my education/university experience would not have been less if I had had my kitty with me - in fact, it would have made the adjustment easier... A pet owner who really cares for their animal certainly has time for school work/social fun and their kitty also...baggy said:Kids in college should be concentrating on school work and having some social fun in their spare time.
I dont think you offended anyone. I think it is great that everyone presents their perspective so we can look at it from all angles. form our opinions. Plus you sound like your involved in the shelter there and see things first hand which gives your opinion even more creditiblity.I hope I haven't offended anyone who has had or does have an animal at college. I'm sure there are many very responsible young adults out there. I just see what happens here at ASU and know that there are probably many more irresponsible young adults and I hate to see animals dumped.
