I found a golden/aussie mix via petfinder and fell. in. love. and I possibly convinced my parents to get another dog!! like they’re still kinda hesitant because they’re worried about me overwhelming myself but they let me fill out the form to see if we qualify so I think that’s a good sign. he’s available through a rescue who says he was found in a trailer park :(( nobody claimed him in the area and he hadn’t been fed for a while. he has a beautiful black and white coat and a face that melts my heart. I want to make him part of my family so bad dfsdgfhsdgf please wish me luck :")

here’s some photos of the pretty pup

Medium

@pokeh I’m not sure but I hope soon. I just have to wait for them to review the form and contact me. hopefully nobody else applied for him before me lol
@kitty thank you so much! :") I also hope so lmbo

Medium

Some rescues screen more carefully potential adoptees to make certain they are placing the pet in the right home.

I hope you hear good news :)

Medium

yeah that’s what I’m assuming is the case for this rescue. the application was very thorough and asked a lot of questions. they also mentioned a potential home visit before making any final decisions. I just hope that we’re the right fit for him :")

Medium

The home visit will likely be to make certain you have a place for him to eat and sleep and shelter if he is outside.

When I adopted Luke and Daisy, the rescue wanted two personal references! One was someone I had known from church and the other was my pet sitter. The also wanted the vet records of my other cats. The flagged Solange as not being vaccinated for one disease. She was an older kitty and I guess she had already been vaccinated. I had to take her in and get more copies to confirm that before they would process that.

Medium

alright thanks for letting me know. the application included a section for vet details but nothing about references, so they might ask about that when they contact me. I’ll let my parents know about the records as well since I’m not sure where my cats’ are anymore.

Medium

They asked for the name and phone number for my vet. They were able to get the records they needed from the Vet. The problem with Solange is that the only record I have was that she had current Rabies vaccination (mandatory in my state). But that was it. The part about the references was right on the application. Actually the application was online, so I was able to fill in the information. I don’t know if they contacted my references or not. My pet sitter was the same one I had used since I moved to my state in 2004. I adopted Luke and Daisy in 2014 – almost exactly six years ago.

I volunteer for a cat rescue in my area. On our adoption applications we do the vet check reference. If your vet does not give a good vet check reference, the potential adopter will not get the cat. Our vet reference is that any animal the potential adopter may have should at least see the vet once a year for vaccinations. It is all about the cats not the adopter. If it is a first time pet, we weigh the volunteers reactions . Volunteers leave little notes on the adoption form. I myself, have said no to several adoptions.

The rescue I was the director of some fosters got to just picked where the dog went off a feeling. Or first come first serve. I didn’t like that I have always did vet checks, I don’t really do personal references unless its a dog with a certain issue. As anyone you put on that section will more then likely only sing your name. Though when a vet is called you can always tell by the tone of a staffs voice or some come right out and tell you how they feel about the potential adopter.

My 501c3 came in the mail today so by mid next month my own rescue will be up and ready to go. I will do vet checks and home checks on all adopters. Because most of the dogs given to me have a behavioral problem. So I decided to have a rescue to take in these dogs. So I will always make sure they will have the best homes I can find and with the right people. Or they will just stay here with me until I find that person.

Each rescue in my area seems to have its own protocol. However, they are trying to make certain that a pet is getting placed in the best home that they can. The fact that I had a resident cat complicated the matter, but also allowed me to be certain that Solange had received the proper vaccinations. Asking for personal references may have been a simple screening question simply to see if I would put a name and phone number there. Keep in mind, that the person who was processing the application had not yet met me in person. I was asking to adopt two cats and not one. Both of the kittens had been bottle fed by the foster

And, if anyone asks of a good rescue to adopt from I refer them to the rescue I adopted Luke and Daisy from.

The attention to detail showed me that they truly cared about their pets and where they are placed. The messaged me that night asking how they were doing…Luke was in his little bed and Daisy was in my lap.

And, I had my vet check them both out before they were let out into the rest of the house and to meet Solange. Solange was 13 when I brought these guys home. It took her time to warm up to them, but as the Alpha female ruled the home with a velvet paw.

The End.
