These adoptable dogs have a lot to give in terms of love: 12-13 February
NEW YORK'S STATEN ISLAND — While adopting a pet may take a little longer than you'd like, it shows that rescue organizations are doing their hardest to find these wonderful animals the greatest home and family possible. Don't be discouraged; remember that they are looking out for the pet's and the adopter's best interests.
After filling out an application, there is an interview process. These are some of the inquiries they may make.
What is the state of your family? How many children and adults are there in the family? Is everyone in the family interested in getting a dog?
What is the state of your housing? Do you have your own house or do you rent one? What kind of real estate do you own? Do you have any plans to relocate in the near future?
What is your previous pet-owning experience, and do you now own any animals? Do you have any suggestions for how to introduce a pet to a new family?
What is the state of your employment? Are you able to take on the financial burden of the new pet? What are your working hours and commute times? Will you be leaving your dog alone for significant periods of time because of your job?
What kind of way of life do you lead? Are you a person who enjoys being active and being outside? Will you bring the dog on holidays, to social functions, and so forth? Do you have a partner, and how would a dog fit into that?
Adopting a pet from a shelter has numerous advantages. You are saving a life when you adopt a dog from an animal shelter. You are not only giving a worthy animal a loving home, but you are also freeing up room and resources for another animal in need. It's satisfying to know that you contributed to a rescued animal's recovery from a life of misery. Fostering also provides an option for persons who might otherwise be unable to take in an animal on a long-term basis due to other commitments.
The relationship between rescue pets and their people is beautiful and profound.
