Breeder Overloads Heartland

Click post title to go to the story. A Monroe rabbit and Guinea Pig breeder decides it's not making her money and turns over dozens of animals to Heartland.

Breeders suck in so many ways.

Last year, many cat rescuers/fixers/shelters called it "the year of the Siamese" because so many of the strays and even feral colonies were Siamese. These generally result when people get an unfixed Siamese to "make money" breeding them and become backyard breeders. They abandon the effort and often the cats, leaving them to continue to breed as feral colonies.

When someone overloads a shelter like this, other animals already there or about to be brought in suffer overload results and sometimes get euthanized when they otherwise wouldn't.
