291 KB,
I've been seeing quite a few anons claiming they work, had worked, volunteer, or had volunteered at shelters and rescues before. I was just curious how many other shelter employees/vollys are out there. Where are my niggers at? What general location is your shelter in, and is it dying down any more now that winter is coming?

Also stories, compliments, complaints, questions. General shelter thread.

I post a lot about working in a shelter. west coast/usa. place I'm at now is a dual location "no-kill" shelter, but used to be at a very high kill shelter and briefly at an emergency animal hospital. ask whatever you want

>is it dying down any more now that winter is coming?
well, instead of leaving their dogs on the street they try abandoning them at our front gate or tie them to the bike rack. that's the only big difference. but since we got security cameras and can easily charge anyone with abandonment if they do...

I used to volunteer at a humane society shelter but they were very fussy and judgmental and while I respect that they may have seen plenty to make them that way, it was not the scene for me. Now I foster cats for different local shelter that's a little more I don't know... Optimistic? Happy? Passionate? It's a better place to be despite actually pulling animals from worse kill shelters.

This is smudge in socialization with a very nice dog who isn't bothering her in the least lol. The dog, an elderly Westie frequently used for socializing kittens with...

I work at a shelter in NY. The building had been around since the 19th century and was originally an orphanage, so you can imagine how awful that is.

>>1997264
Is it really no-kill, or is it a 'we kill only the sick and aggressive animals'? Do you rake in any decent amount from abandonment?

>>1997274
Were they judgmental towards you or potential adopters? It's pretty shitty if they were judgmental to a volly and a foster - fosters are a huge help.

Dog_carting_by_beach.jpg
1 MB,
Has anyone here ever done any dog carting? I recently got an EXTREMELY energetic lab and rottie mix but I had a physical disability that makes it difficult to do long walks so I thought this might be good. Also, it looks fun.

The dog is almost three years old, is that too old to train it to do that? He's also well and above large enough to pull me.

And before you say that obviously a person wit a physical disability shouldn't get a dog and certainly not a high energy dog, you are completely right. But circumstances brought the dog into my life and instead...

My dogs cart and love it. I have a millennium mini sulky and it works pretty well but the harnesses are stupid expensive. If I were to buy a new one, I would go with a sacco cart, its 4 wheeled instead of 2, plus it has polk shafts so you have greater control of where you're going.

I love it. My dogs love it. Everybody wins

why do they want one, becides to be a special snowflake

if they really have no other reason then just a DSH cat from the shelter is perfectly fine. buying a cat from a breeder is ridiculous
>>
Health wise, they're not so bad as pugs. They actually don't even appear to have the issues short-legged dogs have with spine. All and all, they're very nearly as healthy as other breeds and quite healthier than some, such as persians.

Ethically, they're actually really problematic. You see the mutation is heterozygous and so this means only 50 percent of all of the kittens will be short-legged in a breeding between two short legged parents. 25 percent of the kittens will die in the womb due to gene lethality. The other 25 percent will be totally...

Advice on the best way to go about buying dogs from breeders? Using the various pet sites I get a very distinct scammer vibe from every "breeder" I've talked to.

They all send these robot responses asking a bunch of questions about my intent for the dog. And all of the pictures are stock photos that are used all over the web.

If I were a biologist and I were given all of the parameters like "This color sun, these minerals in the soil, this much water, this much space, this kind of atmosphere, etc" it might be possible to guess. And that's assuming alien planets plants would evolve the same mechanism as ours. Chemistry is too creative an engineer for that though.

Right. It is entirely dependant on the environment.

This is the range of the northern pike.
How is it a freshwater fish can live on two different continents an ocean apart and not have evolved?

I know in Britain they were introduced for sport fishing in the 19th century, but there's no way they covered all of Asia like that.

Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone could help me out. Today I found a blue tongue lizard in my yard that my dog had mauled on his head. Is there anything I can do to help him? So far I've cleaned the wound and given him food and water, as well as put him in a tank with some tissues and a tshirt to keep warm. He seems to be blind in one eye as well, but he's moving around a lot more than he was initially.

If your dog got to it then it probably has more broken bones than you even knew existed.
You do not have the right equipment or education to care for that thing in its current state.
>>
give it a soak in warm water for like 10 minutes if it doesn't freak out about that too bad and apply a topical antibiotic like neosporin or triple antibiotic or something. if it doesn't start eating within a few days let it go. look up if the food you're giving it is actually appropriate.
>>
>>1996156
There are no vets open now that I can take him too. Is there nothing I can do for the poor little guy? He seems to be moving about alright but I don't know if they express pain like we do. He was lying on his back but now he's on his feet and waddling around.

Ok /an/, lets say I wanted to live a homestead life, and be reliant on a food garden and animals for food. I need an animal that I can milk. A cow or a sheep? (Don't say goat, goats milk is shitty in my opinion.)

Sheepskin milk is way worse than goats and you need more than 4 sheep, goats can be kept in ones or twos and need less grazing space. Different goats produce different milk as well, plus it makes great ice cream.

Goats will probably serve you better than cows given their gestation period and lifespan but after it's all said and done chickens are based homestead animal.
