In all reality this issue involves the basic premises that few established shelters will sanction family pet access unless they are designated as assist animals. Provided with this ultimatum the options left to the owner is to either forestall entry into the shelter for themselves or to substantiate what some authorities regard as a more practical approach and simply abandon the animals when the moment arrives to depart. In effect, the later choice could be a less humane resolution then any that the owner could possibly decide upon.

We may kid around that you and I are on some sort of special government list because of our beliefs however have you ever wondered just how close we are in our thoughts? Perhaps we are on certain lists or our names are contained in specific databases some of which we know nothing about.

Today the government has at their disposal two major databases exclusively created to aid law enforcement. The first one is administered and updated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations. It is appropriately identified as the Uniform Crime Report or UCR. The UCR contains official data transferred to and received from various law enforcement agencies across America.

 Usually this interchange of crime statistics is based upon what is referred to as index crimes such as homicide, non-negligent manslaughter, rape, robbery, aggravated assault and similar anti-social behaviors however how do we know that it is not also tracking our activities. On a monthly basis various law enforcement agencies direct their crime numbers to the central database at the FBI facilities and our names could very well be part of these inputs. Results of the FBI's compilations are published annually and dissemination of the assembled data is readily made available to law enforcement agencies around the nation.
