Just ignore it. I get that all the time too. I am going to be quite honest here, I am not into having pets in order to save the world - if I get one that desperately needed a home that is a bonus, but that is not why I choose to have pets in the first place. I have never irresponsibly allowed a pet to breed. I have never put an animal in a shelter or turned one out onto the streets or been responsible for the production of unwanted animals. It is not my fault if other people do not care for their pets as responsibly as I do. It is not my fault if other people irresponsibly allow their pets to produce unwanted offspring. It is not my responsibility to sort out the mess that other people make. I do donate to shelters and animal charities, but the world the way it is - that is NOT of my making and I have not 'contributed' unwanted pets to the population, and I will not be made to feel guilty for making my own choice when it comes to what pets I want.
