Sorry I Just Graduated / I Don’t Need My Dog No More

It seems like when kids graduated from collage or the semester is over they just abandon their pets an go home.
I didn’t know that they teach you that animals are disposable items. Can you imagine 600 animals just in May being picked up by one animal shelter?

Pima County Supervisor Ray Carroll said: Amongst the debris, they leave their animals. It's a shame. Ray Carroll also has written to the UA about the issue but said he has gotten no response. You don't have to be a dog lover to have some compassion for these little things that are left to fend for themselves.

A spokeswoman for the Humane Society of Southern Arizona named Jenny Rose said: the shelter takes more animals in during the summer, but it's impossible to say how many of the pets come from students. It's really hard to track.

If this is happening in Arizona I wonder how bad it really is if you add all the colleges together. It just shows you what they are teaching in colleges these days.
