    This was the qustion posted? and I answered it. I don't agree with shooting an animal unless it is for the purpose of ending their pain quickly. Euthanasia is much kinder. To those saying she can't afford it. Well why have a pet? What happens if the pet had gotten very sick? Would it not be taken to a vet then? Euthanasing a dog costs $50 at my vet. Like others have mentioned some vets do payment plans. Another option would be borrowing the money from a friend or relative. There are ways to get money when you need it.

    Have you taken a dog to the vet that doesn't want to go? My dog freaks out about having his temperature taken. Just because the needle is painless doesn't mean the dog wouldn't experience anxiety beforehand.

    Anyway, OP has a solution now with the ranger coming so anyone worried about the dog getting shot can put their minds at ease.

    Things happen, circumstances change, people fall on hard times, how hard is that to understand? And not everyone has people to borrow money off. If you believe that its that simple, im sorry but I find thay a very narrow point of view.

    You could have said you dont agree with shooting an animal without being condescending and rude. Others managed to do so.

    Then if you find it so easy to find money, PM the OP and offer to put the $$ in her bank to pay for the dog to be euthenised. Telling the OP she's feeding you "crap" is a load of nonsense. And rude.

    OP, I'm glad you found a solution. I understand how it's normal for people who grew up rurally or grew up with people who run/own farms (particularly during drought time) to euthanise their own pets. I also know as callous as it may sound it's a hard and often heart breaking decision and isn't meant to come across as uncaring and cruel.

    Back in my day, ABC played Alice Cooper on the kids cartoons and our cartoons could talk. Being a kid sucks now.

    Op I am sorry you are going through such a tough time but I am very glad you didn't take the shooting option. The only reason I said to not take that road is because I worry about the pain the animal would be in if the bullet didn't kill straight away, but I am a big softy when it comes to fur babies

Anyhow regardless of the cost you got the dog, so you now need to deal with the issue in a humane way.
    Omg what is your problem? You have no right to preach to the op about her finances and lecture her on going without. She already is going without as explained in her in post. You honestly think she saw this coming and could have budgeted for it? Like she said the dogs well taken car of. I just cant believe your attitude. Get off your high horse and see the actual human involved in all this who's heart is breaking for her family, the poor kitten and her DOG.

    FFS. Give the poor woman a fecking break! Her SON just presented her with a MAULED kitten, bawling her eyes out. She has a laundry room full of blood and **** from the attack. The dog has snapped at her children. She loves the dog, has had it for four years and by all accounts it has received all needles, vet care etc etc up to this point. Her partner has left her and she has NO money. She asked a question yes, but that doesn't give you the right to sink the blardy boot in!!!! Jesus. Hugs op, Im glad the ranger is going to come and take the dog. xxx

    Exactly what I was trying to say. How hard is it to have some bloody compassion or even tact when you are answering such an emotional op. Suggesting she never has another pet is ridiculous and of no help to the op. Start a new thread if you're that concerned about people not being able to afford pets. You might actually change your mind when you see that things happen and circumstances change. For some Its not so black and white or simple and Its not always an option to borrow.
