PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE APPLYING.
If you are applying for multiple dogs at multiple rescues, we ask that you not apply for a Cause dog yet. We are small and foster based and rescue on the side. When we work to coordinate home checks and then a potential adopter adopts another dog in the meantime, it is very hard on us. Please apply when you are 100% interested in one of our dogs so we do not invest time into the adoption process with you. Please also always have the courtesy to let us know if you adopted another dog in the meantime after applying.
Also understand rescued pets often come from neglectful, abusive, or otherwise substandard situations, so please understand many of our available dogs may need basic training, have poor indoor manners (as they lived outside most of their lives), may require potty training, etc. We work with them as much as possible with trainers as well as in our homes during the foster period to ensure they are adoptable. No dog is ever "perfect," although we think they all are, but a rescued dog can come with emotional baggage that not everyone is ready to handle. They may take longer to bond with you and trust you. They may have separation anxiety, and scratch at your doors and eat your shoes when left alone. They say dogs only live in the "now," but some of our dogs are more sensitive than others, and have lasting idiosyncrasies that require a patient, loving and understanding human. So please make sure you are ready to embark on one of the most fulfilling and challenging adventures ever - rescuing a dog. If you are, you will find yourself being "rescued" just as much as the baby you are rescuing.
