Q&A: How do I know if Im dealing with a good dog rescue?

Question by klm63: How do I know if dealing with a good rescue?
Hi! I have been thinking about adopting a 2 yr old dog from a rescue. I seen the dogs short bio and pic on a website, and emailed the rescue. Basically they said they just got the dog, but wanted me to fill out all my references, a vet reference plus 3 personal references and they are going to contact them first. I still dont have any more knowledge about this dog than whats on the website…does anyone know if this is standard procedure? Seems like a waste of time if the dog wouldnt even be a good match for my family.
(The dog is a little cutie, a purebred that was rescued from a puppymill) What questions should I ask this rescue to make sure everything is on the up and up? Or what steps should I be taking to make this situation go smoothly?

    The key word was ABANDONED. That ball park had been closed for years; there was debris everywhere. I went there when I wanted some alone time to think and didn’t want anyone to find me.

    Sonya has a forever home. We (her foster family) just couldn’t give her up. She is the sweetest pup you could imaging. She will always have some issues (things scare her very easily). She is our sweetie girl and we will always do our best to make sure she is happy. It is so amazing how many people have watched her video and how many people she has touched including us. Sonya would love to give everyone a big kiss especially her hero Eldad.

    Unlike 22 and people who abandon animals!!!!

    These are people who do not have no heart .. Cruelty to that in this world, animals too have feelings like humans … If not afford to have them have not they ask to be adopted they just want affection and love, and not being abandoned as rubbish as most do .. I’m Portuguese cities where it undergoes only see abandoned dogs shame not to do the same this GREAT MAN …

    Also I think you mean autistic or shy. Antisocial Personality Disorder is a bit of a misnomer. The actual disorder is characterized by impulsvie behavior with no regard for consequences as well as a complete lack of conscience. It has absolutely nothing to do with wanting or not wanting to interact with people.

    petfinders.com is a rescue site that has a great reputation nationwide. The rigmarole that this site is putting you through is just like theirs. They are only trying to find responsible owners for the many pets in their care, and at least it shows that the process of adding to your family is to be taken seriously. They don’t want to put the pets in homes that might send them back into the system.

    They also take the time with each pet to evaluate it to place it in the right home, so if one doesn’t suit your family, they will be able to make a better match.

    This sounds like a reputable site, but I would certainly ask for references before sending money, as they may just be copy-catting. Since they are asking references of you, They won’t mind if you require references as well.

    Best of luck to you and yours. I hope this little dog works out for you.

    ive never heard of this rescued dogs on the internet. is this site a government accredited web site? make sure to ask if the adoption is final or not. ur right, a dog has to match the owners.
