Breed rescue people try to be very careful with their dogs, so their adoption requirements
are often strict. You have to fill out a lengthy questionnaire, submit to an interview, provide
references, and often allow a visit to your home, jast as as though you were trying to
adopt a human child.
Many of the animals were previously mistreated, so they cannot be too careful in screening
potential pet parents.
It's usually more expensive ($100 to $400) to adopt a dog from a rescue group than from an animal shelter or
humane society. This is because the rescue group has neutered the dog, treated health problems, started a flea and
heartworm preventative program, provided grooming, and invested time and effort in basic training. Rescue groups do
NOT make money, nor do any workers receive a salary - their adoptions fees don't even begin to cover their costs.
