@Miss Apricot:

How did you determine which rescue organization is legit and which one is fake? We are interested in fostering, but the humane society near where we are only let people foster kitten until they are old enough to be adopted (only a few weeks) or special need cats. We don’t want to cycle through the kittens and we don’t have experience to take care of special need cat. Also, what happened if we wish to return the cat (if the cat doesn’t get adopted after months)? Will the rescue take it back or we’re stuck with it? Sorry to thread jack.

We fostered this 6wk old husky german shep cross for 1.5 weeks last winter. We’ll be gearing up for more fosters once the cold weather really hits — it’s really really sad but there are certain..remote communites.. near-ish ours that have annual ‘dog shoots’ [like the go hunt the stray dogs] that are completely and totally heinous. So, volunteers go to thhose communities and try and rescue as many dogs as possible before that happens.

 

okay now i am sad. 🙁

@cutexkitty:

he was a darling too!

@Miss Apricot:

seriously its deploarable. Most of the dogs are dumped on remote islands during the spring/summer where they just run wild. When the lakes freeze they eventually make their way back to the communities that abandon them and roam around.

My husband once found a puppy with its head stuck in a tin can. I’m just glad that there is a group of people who care enough to try and help the animals rather than just ‘euthanize’ [using that term v. loosely] to ‘resolve’ the issue. Last year over 75 dogs were placed in better homes thanks to Golden Paws 🙂
