More often than we would think, it isn't the actual owner tossing the animal out. There were several times we had people drop off animals on my old works doorstep saying they didn't want an animal anymore, when in fact it wasn't theirs - it belonged to a roomate that was on vacation or in jail, or whoever else under whatever circumstance, which we would find out at later dates. For this reason we quickly formed the rule that we accepted no outside animals.
It shouldn't always be assumed it is the irresponsible owner, but taken in to consideration there are a lot of ignorant or vengeful people in the world, some of which happen to share in these people's lives.
