Adopting preloved dogs can add a wonderful dimension to your life. Many times, abused dogs are brought in and caregivers have no way of telling what the background is. It has been my opinion for a long time that most abused dogs are the ones that are “impulse buys” at the pet stores or were just give interesting facts are that among the most abused dogs are the breeding females.
Support” no-kill” efforts in your area prohibiting the killing of dogs and puppies in shelters. With dog adoption the difference is one of life or death. Preventing animal cruelty soon demanded that a program be established for the adoption of unwanted dogs to new homes giving them a second chance at life.
Your local shelter is chock full of loving and wonderful dogs, big and small, mixed and pure bred. There are a number of reasons rescue dogs get separation anxiety. Special trained dogs can help people with autism to become more independent.; They are very helpful with kids with autism.
Most of the time the rescue groups appear, when they have been told that you are mistreating the dog and maybe you are keeping the dog for activities such as dog fights. Taking care of animals is an expensive business. They also go after stray and abandoned dogs and take them to the rescue centers where they are cared for and cleaned up. The vets take a look the dogs making sure they do not have any bad diseases such as rabies.
In many locations, animal control agencies bring animals to the shelters. In the case of pet store puppies that answer is often a puppy mill, where dogs live crowded together in cages and never get to romp on green grass or see the fresh air. These “meet and greet” sessions are intended to introduce the dogs and the organization to prospective owners and volunteers, raising awareness and encouraging owners to spay and neuter their own pets.
