Dog rescue programs are readily available in most areas of the country and are wonderful places to find the right pet. Shelters and rescue groups do charge a fee, but it’s relatively inexpensive compared to the service they provide. Shelters and pet agencies try their best to keep the animals alive and put them in good homes, but sometimes the animals are euthanized; there are just too many homeless pets and not enough loving homes.
Many adopted dogs will come to the new surroundings filled with fears based upon earlier mistreatment or the harsh rules of their previous owners. From entire litters of puppies, to young dogs, to older housebroken dogs too. Our money goes – and always has gone – right into the care of the animals.
They are a non-profit group working with other non-profit groups to offer medical assistance, foster homes and adoption services. The puppy, as evident from the pictures, is living a dream life in its new home with her own people showering love. Although mixed breeds are the most common type of animal you’ll find, pure breeds appear in shelters more than you might think.
Chewing: Since most rescue dogs are out of the early puppy stages, they will no longer be teething and chewing everything within reach. There must be allowances made, and time given for both the dog and your family to adjust. Not all of these animals are vicious or “bad”, some of them are simply paying the price for their owner’s carelessness or disregard.
Many of these shelter animals are being evacuated from fire zones and are being brought to shelters in the San Francisco Bay area, so that pets displaced by fires can get emergency housing. However, once you are the party selected for a particular dog, you are the only party granted the meet and greet, and we will not go on to a secondary applicant unless an adoption does not result from the primary applicant selected.
