    I don't agree with shooting the dog either but I disagree with you re borrowing money. She has explicitly said she is going through a difficult relationship breakup and that she has contacted the ranger. There is no need for her family to not have pets just because she's having a tough run lately.

    I suspect the shooting comment was said in a time of extreme emotion/anger at the fact her kitten was killed and she is understandably upset. I'm glad she's had time to think it through and contact places before doing anything drastic. I think the ranger is the best option because the kids sound devastated at the kitten being gone, I suspect having their dog shot on top of that would have made the situation much, much worse. This way they can be told he's gone to a new house where he can't hurt anyone but he's OK and cared for.

    I hope you're ok OP

    My vet charges almost 300 so not everyone is that lucky. To borrow money would mean needing to pay it back, the op has already stated there is no money atm.

    It is a sad fact of life that many animals get shot on farms and in rural areas, and I actually don't think it is against RSPCA rules or illegal if you are rural.

    I think you will find shooting an animal without proper testing is classed as cruelty and is an offence.There are other options. Before having Pets become educated. If your finances are not enough don't have them. I am not being nasty but animals are family members who incur unexpected costs..

    How is it so hard for people to understand circumstances change and people can struggle due to unexpected reasons?

    But this is what some of us are trying to say: Family gets a couple of pets when money is plentiful. Circumstances change, money dries up how can people know what will happen in the future? The most money stable people can lose everything within the blink of an eye. See how Its not as easy as saying don't have pets if you can't afford them?

    Did you read the bit where she's arranged for the ranger to get the dog? Perhaps you should become educated on the entire post before you comment. She's doing the best she can in the situation she's in.

Anyhow regardless of the cost you got the dog, so you now need to deal with the issue in a humane way.

    Well I figure it seems to be the order of the day. You are being rude to the Op. I just think before you jump on her you should maybe consider she posted in an extremely emotional state and she dosent need to hear she is talking 'crap'
