My family spent days, if not weeks searching for a dog that would suit our family. We spent time placing inquiries, providing info on our family and asking questions on the posted animals. Crickets, not one response. Finally, we realized we had to place applications to even get these people to speak to us. Once we did get a response (1 out of 7) the organization came up with every reason to not even let us meet the animals. It's a site for rescues seeking donations. I've researched many of the rescues in my area listed on this site. Sadly, most have lost sight of the goal here-placing rescues in loving forever homes. Placing unrealistic barriers, high costs, and excuses of why you are not the one has exasperated the homeless animal crisis in our country. If rescues are holding these animals for extended periods of time or find excuses for you not to meet, move on. This is what you find on Petfinder.
