So one dog hops in the car and you just drive off and leave the other because he didn't "look friendly". Just because they don't look friendly doesn't mean that aren't. Did you try to call him over or did you drive off when the cute poodle mix hopped in?

I called him to come to me but looked very reluctant and walked away from me. What could I do? Try to force him into my car and risk being bitten by it?
I have never seen a shelter with just dogs that are adoptable. Most have a wide variety,mostly pits.
When I have looked at her site most dogs are small.There are many rescues that will have just small breeds some with the larger breeds.How can she be doing this for the money? If you look at some of the dogs dogster site she talks about looking for the owners of the dogs she finds running loose.The last thing I would do with a dog is turn them to a animal shelter. Most are horrendous.
i still would like to know if you have na chip reader? the shelters do..and if your going to take animals off the street...then you need to see if they belong to a human..thats only fair..I personaly dont like specific rescues that only take this or that..far too many are left out that way. I would also hope that you would answer catlovers question as to how long you keep animals before you adopt them out? I have done rescue fgor well over 25 years..and saod i had toped but still rescued 2 shelties in the past 7 to 8 months..but they were owner give ups..i would never scoop one up off the street an then call it rescue..its actually stealing...if you contact your animal control...
I sure can say it about me. I work very closely with my local shelter. I am a volunteer and a foster home. I also am a volunteer and foster home for the national Cane Corso rescue organization. I have recieved calls in the middle of the night to take in a dog in need. I have driven hundreds of miles to help a dog in need. I donate 200lbs of dog food and 50lbs of cat food a month to the shelter. I took in a very pregnant rottweiler last year that gave birth to 12 puppies that she couldn't care for that I had to bottle fed for 4 weeks. So yes that is what a rescuer is all about. Not someone that see a dog with potenial and taking it in and leaving ones that they don't think are adoptable behind. And if you were so scared of the big dog you could have called someone.
huronbreeze, here is her response to how long she keeps the dogs before adopting them out....
"I wait 2 weeks because that is what I was told by another rescue org. that is how long they wait. If someone knows the time frame for Calif. please let me know, I want to obey the law."
I think she did something wonderful here. Would you put some strange, straggly lookin dog that was reluctant to come near you into your car and drive around with it free running around the car?
alldogslover- it seems as if you find alot of dogs running around by you. Have you ever thought of getting one of those "cages" that you put inbetween the back seat of your car and the "hatch"? I think this would be safeist in your case because you don't know what these dogs may do to you, and then you could try to rescue the ones who don't seem like you would trust. just a suggestion
Eveyone should not be so harsh on people on this forum. It makes others a little weary of posting on it because they are afraid of the comments that may get made to them. I know sometimes I am afraid to ask or state something because I may get "enlightened by some with some crude comments.
cschimizzi, that is good that you do all that if that is how you feel like helping. I do what I feel like doing to help out, I dont' think that makes me less of a person. I know my limitations and I will NOT take more responsibility than I can handle. I also have learned to not judge ANYONE because I don't know the whole story and I don't know the intentions of the person. Actually, I am not that surprised about all this bashing....I have seen it be done to NUMEROUS people in the past...so I guess today is my turn.
I know I am not perfect and I make mistakes but my intentions towards my rescues are not to make a profit from them but to help find them a good home.
And as I said it before...if you can teach me something or point something I might be doing wrong, please do so but in a POLITE manner.
"Would you put some strange, straggly lookin dog that was reluctant to come near you into your car and drive around with it free running around the car?"
scenicvalesiberians your right I wouldn't put that dog in my car. I would have called someone to come and get it. And being a "rescue" your obligated to do what is best for the animal. Not just leave it behind because it was big and didn't "look" friendly. If she were to become a "real" rescue she should have called AC and once they arrived they would have taken the big dog and they would have allowed to to keep the little one. They would have taken down all the information in case the owner called the shelter looking for their dog. When people loose a dog the shelter is usually the first place they look.
no johnson..animal control does not steal dogs..it is against the law to be with out a leash..they have to pick them up..they are part of the local goverment and as such..has a budget paid with tax dollars to cover them, there expences and what they do..most are not perfect..but..if you loose a dog..are you going to know to go to alldoglovers house and knock and ask if she has a fuzzy white mix? I think not..you would think different if you lost a dog..and yes..i have rescued many many in my day..never once did I do so in this fashion..and if she doesnt even know the laws in her own state..then she is in my opinion free lancing...many hoarders start out in much the same way..soon no one will be good enough to adopt to..and when we see her on the news...we will all think different...i think owner give ups are different then crusing for dogs..doesnt care if she brings cooties back to the rest..you think she has vet bills now..lol..look out.. get a case of coccidea, kennel cough..distemper..let it run though her place..she will be broke before she knows it..then who is she doing a favor to?
