If you are considering adopting a dog from an animal shelter or a dog rescue group, that is wonderful! Home life usually gets put on the back burner, and it takes a conscious effort to not put the shelter first all the time. If you have small children, you need to be sure that they will understand and follow some basic rules before adopting a dog. When animals are relinquished by owners, the shelter staff makes every attempt to collect a thorough history of that pet.
They can make sure the puppies get a good start in life while they wait for their permanent homes. California, one the of states hit hardest by the sub-mortgage meltdown is considering Assembly Bill 2949, which would allow bank representatives to immediately seek potentially life-saving help for animals abandoned at foreclosed properties.
Many of the dogs we take are small dogs and puppies but we also take as many bigger dogs as we have carers for. The introduction to your other pets may NOT go as planned…maybe the ”˜new kid’ starts humping all of your dogs, marking your furniture, growling, etc.
When you adopt a dog from an animal shelter, there won’t be any health surprises. This means that you can save time to have potty training that need a lot of effort, time and patience to do. Leash training also have been trained so you can easily take your aged dog to walk without having much problems.
Don’t let this put you off adopting a dog. If it is impossible to place an animal for adoption, the unfortunate animal is mostly euthanized. So, hopefully as we do at Emerald City Pet Rescue , your new foster has been vetted or isolated for a period at a vet’s office prior to you bringing the foster pet in contact with any of your other pets.
