Note: This is an open letter to a rescue group, but all responses are welcome.
Dear President, Vice President and board:
I am concerned by the high number of dogs your rescue is adopting out.
I know the woman who adopted “Mia” the pit mix from your organization. Had you done a home visit, you would’ve found out Mia would be spending five hours alone in an indoor/outdoor kennel attached to a heated garage every single weekday. She has been abandoned all over again.
I’m also surprised you adopted out a senior beagle to a woman with a 13-year-old poodle that is not spayed. The poor beagle went from a high-kill pound straight to an irresponsible owner.
Your web site lists a “happy tail” for a shepherd named Buck who is now “enjoying” farm life as a working, outdoor dog. Buck was dumped by his first owners only to be dumped again by his “rescuers.”
As long as your group keeps trusting the Irresponsible Public with so many dogs, I can no longer support your cause.
Pretty soon there will be no dogs left to adopt!
– Lindsay, Worried Dog Lover
