    For my rescue, you only need a vet reference if you currently have a pet. We're not checking to make sure that you have a vet to take your new animal to, we're checking with the vet to make sure that...

    The second guessing is what got to me, too. Hugs.

    I know they probably deal with a lot of people who bring treatable cases animals in and request euthanasia, but it's still so hard when you've...

    I am so sorry for your loss.

    I had a very similar experience at an emergency clinic with my old girl and carried a lot of anger about it for awhile. I eventually realized that being an emergency...

    Okay, here are my super long musings on adoption restrictions and adopting puppies specifically.

    So you take all the strays you come across in to your private vet for full cost treatment?

    I'm curious as to the portion of your budget that you set aside for that, as I know firsthand that it can...

    You are completely missing my point.

    Low cost, "no frills" clinics and services have been disparaged on this thread by private veterinarians and staff.

    I am pointing out that if not for these...

    I think you missed the part where it wasn't my pet? It was a stray. A stray I was not able to keep but was trying to help and was willing to pay for services for.

    Having seen numerous veterinary...

    I totally, 100% hear people's complaints about many rescues making adoption unattainable.

    Anecdotally, the dogs/cats at most rescues I volunteer for get the "down and dirty" ASPCA spays/neuters (not via mobile clinic but still) and the number of complications is super low.

    FWIW, I...

    I assume go to a regular practice or a vet hospital if needed. I've never done it myself; was just looking into options for a run of strays a few months ago.

    The ASPCA's low cost mobile spay/neuter clinic is (last I checked) $125 in NYC. That's about as low as it goes around here.

    Just whisk the kitty away and rehome it the next time neighbor boots it out.

    It is EXTREMELY rare that I recommend this course of action but luckily your neighbor doesn't want the cat anyway.

    It looks like you didn't read the rest of my post, where I explained that to rescues "work outside the home but come home for lunch" is different than "puppy left alone 8+ hours a day."

    I am genuinely confused as to how people who work outside the home 8+ hours a day can house train a puppy. An 8 week old can only hold it a couple of hours, tops. So what do you do if you're gone 8...

    With the caveat that I agree that many rescues make it too difficult for good owners to adopt a dog, no one is "making" anyone purchase from a puppy mill.

    If you are "forced" to buy from a puppy...

    I'm in the northeast (NYC) and our cat's spay was quoted between $350-600. We ended up on the lower end of the estimate ($400 maybe?) because it was an easy procedure.

    $600 for a dog sounds about...

    In many, many cases conservatism has been appropriated and conflated with southern pride, which is shorthand for "racist ideals."

    Catahoula is probably more likely, now that that suggestion has been brought up. I see a lot of Catahoula mixes and not so many Weim mixes at my rescue.
