  1. I'm not someone who is against saving pets, I think we all should be more responsible when adopting animals and we should be very aggressive in making sure NO creature is harmed or mistreated. But for the life of me, I don't understand why there are so many more save animals sites or posts than there are to save people? Why can't we as people be as aggressive about the homeless, hungry, mentally Ill, and desperate people who are just trying to make it as we are about animals?

I was raised in the midwest and always thought DC, the white house was the "Emerald City" of American. But there are so many people in food lines. If we can find mistreated animals, why we can't find hungry and helpless people? I think as people we can chew gum and walk at the same time. I plead with the animal activist, states, and the government to widen and or include in your endeavors PEOPLE!
