"One of the essential truths you learn while doing rescue -- people are idjits."

I won't disagree that many people are just that, across the board. I will say another (often overlooked) truth about doing rescue is that by continually seeing the negative side of pet ownership you become very biased.

It's like how my friend who worked with child services thinks no one should ever have children, ever. She saw so much misery, abuse and idiotic behavior. I can see how that can slant ones view to thinking that most people treat children that way, even if I don't think that is really the case. Do you think most people abuse their kids? I no more think that then I believe most folks would mistreat their animals.

I think rescue people, like the media sometimes forget about all the responsible folks who do right by their animals.
