If you are considering adopting a dog from an animal shelter or a dog rescue group, that is wonderful! People leave the dogs in their backyard, drop them by the road side, desert or many of them are left in shelters. Unfortunately, this means that they often turn away animals leaving them without a shelter or food. Recently, a dog that was rescued and later adopted by a loving family had in turn rescued them from a fire that destroyed their home.
The very special members of Balkan Underdogs work extremely hard to help raise funds to get as many dogs into foster homes as they can. Many previous owners have been as irresponsible in this area as others, and in the shelter, dogs have continued to do their “business” right in the pen.
Many people think that you can’t get a good dog at a dog shelter or that only pure bred dogs are worth having. I think it should be obvious to you that I am also interested in saving a life, by applying to adopt a dog from a shelter. Once the animal shelter authorities are satisfied with the credentials of the new owners, the pet is given away for a fee.
Adopting a dog also means that you can find a dog that has already been spayed or neutered. Let’s find out more about animal shelters from the articles provide below. We will have adoption counselors on-hand to discuss the joys of puppyhood and what their needs will be as they grow into adult canine companions.
The problem is that many shelter dogs offered for adoption have serious psychological or other bad dog behavior problems, and even medical problems, which the frequently scanty screening methods did not detect or report. About Us: K-911 Rescue is a registered, non-profit organization located in Manotick (south of Ottawa) dedicated to finding forever families for dogs in need.
