    I didn't write the Ripoff Report and I have no connections with them. One of my friends in Rescue alerted me to them. I'm just passing the information along. I have never dealt with Another Chance...

    Cutting down a cheap leash is a good suggestion if you are on a budget, but there are some advantages to a leather "pull tab". My store doesn't sell these, but I bought one from Leerburg a few years...

    Well said. For me, I have had some positive experiences with Rescues where the dog was too aggressive or too much to handle for its original owners. I was able to turn them around and make them a...

    Sheilah,

    There are a lot of success stories, but there are also a lot of homeless dogs that are stuck in less than optimal conditions with a foster. I have rescued a number of adult dogs myself,...
