I don't know if it's just in my area,but I've noticed what seems to be a rash of GSD ads in newpapers,CL,and of course for us calls from owners who want to surrender. Has anyone else noticed this? We have 13 GSD at the city shelter now,all from different owners.
Not in this area... I always keep an eye out for them, cause I will do anything I can to help them. I haven't seen a GSD in the shelter here in the last year. I'm most likely picking one up 2moro 350 miles from here though, because I troll ads when I travel as well. I don't think there are many in this section of the country...from SW KS, now to NE KS...I always watch. I'd be in deep if I lived somewhere there were lots... LOL!

I wonder if it has something to do with christmas?
I personally dont understand that but it does have some merit. I was talking to some people at petco (we adopted 2 guine pigs for my daughter- they were owner surrendered) and he told me that they will really increase in the adoptions till January. Apparently nothing says happy birthday Jesus like turning out the pet you promised to love and care for, go figure.

Around here it's not likely to be Christmas but the fact that it can go from 80/90 degrees to 30s or below almost overnight. In the summer my gas bill is like $20 and in the winter it's like $150 and that's with the heat OFF all night and way down (55) during the day. People with low incomes or losing their jobs might not be able to afford pets during the winter if they are trying to keep their families from not freezing.
