we're talking about dogs not kids.

how are kids like pets?

you don't know how homeless people use their money.

a cat laying on a dog, what? cats lay on dogs and
cuddle with them. what's unnatural about it?

Homeless people don't have enough money to feed themselves let alone another living thing.

The homeless doesn't have a home and now we are gonna try and make him dogless?!! Although sometimes I think these people use dogs as a way to collect more money. Because let's be honest would you be willing to give more to the guy begging alone or to the guy with a dog?

Well from my experience and the homeless people I see in my area, that is how I judge. I don't put my dog in a crate, so there. Just because you may be a functioning drug/alcohol user doesn't make it okay. Drugs are illegal. You go to jail, who will take care of the dog.

I don't believe kids are like pets.

I've met many homeless people, adults and children, with and without dogs. Many are in that situation for various reasons... generally not due to their own faults.

I disagree that all homeless people use drugs and booze. Or just use their dogs to get money for drugs and booze.
(I know plenty of well-to-do people who neglect their animals, kids, and 'booze it up ' or use drugs in their fine homes as well.)

As to the original question of homeless people being ALLOWED to have a dog...I don't care for that term either.
It may have been their pet prior to becoming homeless. or, the dog was homeless and that person took them in.

From what I've seen, most homeless people who have dogs take as good care as possible. It provides companionship for both.

IMO, I think it's harsh to judge any segment of society, homeless or not.
Just my opinion. . Kat

I've been told a lot of things that are "unnatural", but this is a new one!

But you may have a point. I always suspected that, somehow, my dogs and cats were being unnatural with each other... but didn't realize that I was abusing them by allowing them to do it.

there are plenty of non-homeless people who do this. I saw a report once (a few years ago) that a large portion of panhandlers aren't homeless at all - they are merely scam artists looking to score.
Or guys who use their dogs to attract women.
Or people who make plenty of money but never spend it on meeting their dogs needs.
Or who are drug users or commit other crimes and will eventually get arrested then who will take care of their dogs?
And we won't even go into abusing animals. I'm sure that most people arrested for abuse have homes.

I agree...how could you deny either one of that love and companionship?
