MUST READ BEFORE ADOPTING
Hello everyone, This message is mainly for future adopters but can apply to all dog owners.
You want to adopt a dog and we are here to help you find the right one.
However, there is one fundamental concept you need to be aware of: A dog that is put up for adoption is by definition abandoned. Even though they had a good home, they arrive scared and confused, not understanding what is happening to them. So they all have to deal with a trauma that will take a lot of love, understanding and time to resolve. You want to help one of these dogs but before starting the adoption process it is important that you are aware of the commitment you are making. We are here to help you meet your future companion but also to provide you with essential advice on how to behave with him. Be open-minded and observant.
If you’re having trouble with your dog, someone familiar with the breed or someone who’s been through the adoption process before may be able to offer you a solution. We don’t expect a superhero! It is therefore important that each dog is adopted in a home adapted to its needs. The goal is above all to give our dogs a happy life. Anyone considering adopting a dog should consider a few things to ensure they can provide the right home for the right dog. The worst thing you can do to a dog is to take him without proper consideration and then return him because you can’t stand him or he doesn’t live up to your expectations. A dog is not a toy. Despite what some people think, dogs have feelings. They suffer from loss and grief, worry, confusion and stress. You commit for several years.
Is your family also engaged in adoption? Can you afford a dog? Adopting a dog means buying food, regular flea and worm treatments, annual vaccinations, and occasional vet bills. Do you have the time and energy for a dog? Your dog will need exercise (regardless of the weather) and play. It may require grooming. He may need the help of a behavior expert. When you go on vacation, there will also be kennel fees. Maybe insurance? Dogs can be expensive. Adopting is not always a success. This is often because the adopter does not understand the needs of their particular dog. Sometimes the dog does not settle. If all of this scares you, you may not be ready to adopt.
To learn more about the adoption process, you can become a foster family to understand our commitment to finding the right home for dogs. When you observe the dogs and check their ID cards, do not hesitate to inquire about the character of the dog you like. Don’t feel insulted if you are told the animal is unsuitable. There are plenty of dogs that will fit. You may not find the one you want right away. Visit our site regularly. There are many homeless dogs waiting for adoption and staying with one of our foster families. As soon as the right dog is available, we can introduce him to you.
