print email Source: Editorial: Animal hoarders do more harm than good
Mr Kirby, we've heard over and over the excuses.
November 26, 2013 | 11:23 PM

I've had online conversations with Samantha over and over since the news broke about the animals being saved from that situation. So, yes, her side has been out there over and over. I concur with Mr. Stewart that it's been one excuse after another. Probably what disturbed me the most were the claims that the children's unfinished chores were such a strong contributing force in the animals being taken. With what the situation escalated too I personally feel this puts far too much responsiblity on the children and not the parents. If the parents are running an animal rescue they should be responsible for the care fo those animals. I pray for those children often that they are getting the counseling they will need to get past this.

Any responsible rescue I know doesn't give animals to a home where the parents expect their children to learn responsiblity with the care of the animals or they often see the same animals returned when the children don't complete the chores the parent didn't want themselves. Common sense would say that two people running a rescue would adhere to the same school of thought in the care of the animals in their rescue.
