    What are pet owners to do if only a limited number of shelters and motels allow pets?

    I'm a longtime dog owner and my dogs are family members too.
    That being said, we can't control how we treat other human beings via legislation so how do we hope to succeed with pets?

    Human life is and should be treated differently in the law. Are we going to claim constitutional rights for pets?
    Common sense says no.

    Do we shoot children stealing water for themselves of family?
    How about food?
    Where do you draw the line?

    Hey, if we're going to start upping the punishments during natural disasters, let's up the punishments! Felony for animal abandonment, instantaneous death penalty for looting.

    Both silly.
    I'd be more interested in upping the penalties for animal abuse during normal times.

    A lot of hotels waived their rules on pets, and there's a lot of pet friendly hotels nowadays.

    Is leaving your backyard squirrel behind also a felony offense? What about abandoned goldfish?

    Points out the absurdity of trying to criminalize animal abandonment as a felony.

    I bet snake owners are pretty much out of luck when it comes to finding a shelter.

    Since January 2016, animal abuse has been classified as a Class A felony.

    Please indicate when looting became a Death Penalty offence.
