Dog rescue programs are readily available in most areas of the country and are wonderful places to find the right pet. They have a strict policy of sterilization for all dogs over six months of age, and require prospective owners to agree to sterilize puppies under six months at the appropriate time; this policy ensures that fewer unwanted puppies will be born in the Austin area.
You’ll also want to budget for dog bowls for food and water, a leash and collar or harness, pet id tag, toys, doggie dental necessities like toothbrush and toothpaste, brush, shampoo, nail clipper and any vitamins or other grooming supplies your particular breed may require.
The way it works is when a shelter’s space starts to become too crowded and can’t take in more dogs, a call goes out to a volunteer who then takes care of coordinating the transporting of dogs from the overcrowded shelter to dog rescue organizations and groups.
The good rescue dog with names and breed are Apollo (German Shepherd), Balto (Husky), Barry (Saint Bernard), Dakota (Pitbull), Dusty (Airedale Terrier), Gandalf (Shiloh Shepherd), Swansea Jack (Newfoundland), Togo (Siberian Husky), and Velvet (Labrador Retriever).
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.
