|I agree with Bu and Yoshi. Sure, if they are trying to keep them long-term and keep taking in multiple animals I do agree with the other posters....however, I also highly dislike it when people are treated like criminals for things like not getting an animal fixed before finding it a new home. I didn't get Duke fixed before he went to his new home, but that was part of the agreement. To me basic care is shelter, food, and shots (legally req, such as rabies). If they can provide that, and are only keeping the animal short-term, I see nothing wrong with it. I also dislike it when people are put down for not being able to afford any and all medical care (ie, expensive surgeries and the like, not routine stuff). Just the other day I saw on a thread where people were getting mad because someone would not pay $500 on a medical procedure...some people don't have that much at all, much less that much extra.
Simply put, I think we need to be more careful and not condemn or criticize someone for not doing something that 'we' would have down, or what 'we' think should have been done. You can never know what that person is going through, so advice needs to be given with that in mind.
