Is this right??

So,yes I realize pets are not people and I guess their lives are not much more worth then that of a fly but give this a thought:I know that we have to at times leave our pets home alone.There is no way of dragging them to the store or elsewhere ALL the time.A dog usually is kept to guard your place and a cat......well most cats do not apreciate the ride in a car,much less would I recommend taking your birds for a stroll (or your fish?) get my point (I hope).But if you bring your pet to a vet clinic,usually because it is sick or sometimes maybe for boarding,you are paying tough money and one would think that includes close supervision of your pet.But not so.Most of the time when the office closed,your pet will be on its own for the night.In a cage.Alone.And I doubt the neighbors walk in from time to time and check on them like you could have it at home.So I feel this story was preventable.Someone should be there to watch sick pets 24/7.
Sorry if I step on a nerver here but.....thats my opinion!

Clinic Fire Kills Dozens of Pets
About 6 months ago, Gwinnett County's Fire Department received a donation of several K9 oxygen masks. Wednesday morning was the first time they used them and they helped save several dogs. The masks were used to revive some of the seven large dogs rescued from an early morning animal clinic blaze. Three small dogs and nine cats, five of them kittens, perished in the fire, however.
A motorist driving by the Animal Care Clinic of Suwanee on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard called 911 after noticing flames and smoke coming from the main building around 1:15 a.m. It took Gwinnett County firefighters just over an hour to knock down the blaze and attempt to rescue the animals trapped inside.

The three dogs and nine cats that died were all on the main floor which sustained heavy damage. The surviving seven dogs were all rescued from the basement. All seven were taken to nearby Animal Emergency Center of Gwinnett on Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road, where they were reported in good condition. At least four of them benefited from the newly donated K9 oxygen masks.

Gwinnett County Fire Lieutenant Thomas Rutledge said the fire appears to have started in an office on the main floor of the clinic, which was closed at the time. The exact cause is still unknown.

I am just glad that someone who drove by noticed this......
And I feel very sorry for the people who lost their pets in a plcase they trusted in for their care!

There should have been at least one person there to look after the animals in case they needed attention. Besides, if I left my pet there for boarding there damn well better be someone there watching them. You just cannot trust anybody anymore, anywhere, anyhow. :-(

Its rediculous that such high prices service comes with no care,I mean maybe a little bit of actuall love for the job a/k the animal.Despite the fact that these are "just" animals (I hate to state it like that)and not people,it does not end there....just look at nursing homes.They pull the same shit on the old.All together:
If you are a weak creature,no one gives a damn,eventho they get tough money for their "services"!
A job seems to be a job,without devotion these days.

Animals have been on this planet long before man and will be here long after. So who are the real lower forms of life here?

We are because we seem to want to belittle and humilliate everything that is not human.
The question arrises how that makes us HUMANE?
