Do you agree or disagree with the neighbours petitioning to shut down this animal shelter?

While I admire her work in taking in so many animals, I think she has a little too many. It is, afterall, a residential area.

I don't think they should shut it down, but rather put a cap on the amount of animals she can take in.

I think these people have WAY to much time on their hands, and are very mean spirited!!
I totally disagree with the neighbors!! Here are some wonderful loving people trying to do a good thing, helping animals that would have otherwise been dumped or destroyed!!
People need to learn to mind their own da*n business! "live and let live"!!
If I lived next door, I would ask to volunteer!!

I remember a story similar to this, except it was a home for the intellectually challenged, the neighbors were worried that the residents (intellectually challenged) could be dangerous!! :rolleyes:

People need to lighten up, don't sweat the small stuff, and leave others alone to live their life!!!

JMO:o

The pictures will break your heart.

Its an inappropriate place to put this facility but I think she and the neighbours can agree to co-operate within a reasonable time frame to raise money to generate another facility in a better location. If they did that, everyone would come out happy.

I completely agree with Rick.

People are so quick to want to get rid of a "problem" without offering help with a solution.

I too agree with Rack that maybe the neighbour need to compromise and have a time line and a Group effort to move the facility.

but now for my little vent...I am so sick of peoples' attitudes that are basicly "Not In My Neighbourhood" that is prevelent everywhere. These animals, or people with challenges need a place to live too!
