Why they say no.

When you call a rescue and they are unable to take your animal – or one you’ve found – the following may give you a glimpse into why they said “no”.

#1)  There is no space available.  We understand someone  has been completely irresponsible and dumped an animal (or animals) in your yard – there are no easy fixes or answers.  From a humane point of view, if you can see that the animals have access to food and water, use social media to help find them a new home – that would be wonderful.  If you find a rescue that can take them in a few weeks, please understand why there is a waiting period.  This is not an ideal world.  If it was – there would be few (if any) owner surrenders and everyone who called would bring us an animal who truly needed a home.

#2  Same story – 200th verse  Spay and Neuter your pets – – all of them.  It is the only way we’ll stop the heartbreak of homeless dogs and cats desperate to be rescued.

#3  There are good people in this world.  Those of us in rescue have met many of them – and work with them as well.  It’s what gives all rescuers the heart to continue to save as many as we can.
