|Is it true that in New York and New Jersey very few people have pets and the lucky few who find a dog friendly apartment have to have proof the dog is spayed/neutered and has been to basic training?
I was also told that all cats must be declawed and that both dogs and cats are very very expensive, for example, the homeless kitten I was trying to place would be worth $70 to$150. and that there aren’t any strays/rescues there?
Honestly, this sounds really unlikely to me, but I can’t say I have been closer then the New York airport to the city in question. I honestly got the feeling the person, who is from the east coast, was trying to suggest the deep south is backwards partly because of the number of stray/unwanted dogs, cats, and puppies. (Not because in this climate they are more likely to stay alive as a stray or as stray puppies until someone helps them or they are picked up by the shelter.) and partly because she is having problems with culture shock and the low tolerance for fast, brusque speech which we consider rude.
