Q: IS ANYONE OUT THERE??

I am participating in the activities offered on this web site because it's super! I enjoy it and I love helping contribute to helping Animal Rescues/Shelters. However, I find it absolutely amazing how many things that I have found that are important, yet there is no response. Or, they have a "point value" so the response isn't helpful and is a transparent attempt to help "one rescue/shelter beat another". Important issues aren't being addressed and I fear that we are creating an environment where we who care about the animals will never be united and actually consider one another competitors. If that is the case and no one responds to this message, I'm through. Remember, everything that we do is about what is most important, and that is protecting the precious gift we know as our animals/pets.

You were going to leave if no one responded to this? Wouldn't that be more transparent than the people you are criticizing? You stated that you love the site (it is "super") and you "love helping...", but it sounds like you were going to give that all up if there were no responses...sorry, but that's lame.

In regard to some of the "answers", you need to keep in mind that there are many teens/tweens on the site and they offer what they can. They may not be the most knowledgeable--yet--but at least they are trying.

People also have varying degrees of importance attached to the numerous subjects addressed on this site. Just because no one responded to something you deemed important doesn't mean they didn't respond to items they thought were important. This is a site where differences of opinion are suppoed to be welcomed. Threatening to leave because others didn't join your bandwagon sounds childish to me.

There will always be people who do things we don't like or agree with. Although I enjoy seeing my points increase, I try to make my comments on news articles and to questions be of value instead of just to get points. I hope you see more of that than the latter. I have learned a lot on this site and hope you stick around and do the same.

Every question is not importatnt to every member, as well as, every answer.....that's what makes it so great. You can choose what to read according to its importance to you at the time. Experience can only make us better pet caregivers and offer this advice to others. You cannot make them interested in your advice--just as you cannot force somone to pick up their dog's business! Don't give up on the site just because someone else doesn't respond to questions that you feel are important.....now that would be just a shame.........
