    Whoa whoa whoa. Rescue dogs are not all screwed up. In fact, most dogs that are returned aren't. It's usually the people that are the problem, not the dog. Yes, sometimes the dog is unsocialized and...

    OP, I'm not attacking you. I'm talking about rescue as a whole.

    Work in rescue for a month. People return dogs when they aren't cute. It's a fact. People are stupid. It doesn't take working in...

    Rescues want people to wait. Having a dog that JUST died is a major reason for rescues to want you to hold off on getting a puppy. People make rash emotional decisions when they're grieving. Getting...

    I volunteer with a rescue and I used to work for one. We ask lots of questions of potential adopters to make sure the animal is going to the best home it can and to prevent the chances of it being...

    But if you don't believe in hell, why would that offend you? I don't understand why that would be offensive instead of just "meh" or "quaint" as mvp said or even kind that the person cares enough to...
  10. Itchy welts after flea treatment on cat?

    My tortie girl was treated with Revolution about a week ago. I suspected she had fleas because her sister did, but I saw no dirt or evidence. She was not abnormally itchy. Now she is getting itchy...

    If anyone should pay the bill, it is the other dog's owner. The dog walker is not liable for what a dog that is not theirs did to another dog that is not theirs. But I agree with the dog walker- it...

    I work in rescue. I don't know most of our dogs' history, but I know how they act in the time that we have them in foster care or at the shelter. A kennel tech or foster parent can tell you the most...

    Rescue is expensive, even with breaks from vets for being a rescue. It starts with the fee from animal control, since that is where most animals are pulled from. Some animal controls will give shots...

    If they're fed in other ways, maybe the bird mortality rate isn't as high. Sounds like you're encouraging the public to "ignore it, it's just a feral" which might contribute to the "throw-away"...
