Featured Rescue Followups - March

Well, here's the Featured Rescue Followups for March and all those that weren't adopted from previous months. I'm not posting the pictures this month because it is so difficult to make them line up properly and I don't have time to do it. Sorry. If you want to see the pics of these guys, feel free to go to their original entry.

There are many that weren't adopted this month. Shelters and rescues see a fluctuation of adoptions throughout the year and the month of March is no exception. Starting the week of March Break, you will find that adoptions trickle to nearly a standstill. It will start to speed up again around mid-April (now) and by end of May and June it is rolling again.

As always, if any of you can open your home to a rescue dog, I urge you to do so. If you have already done so, than that's great! If you aren't able to adopt, why not foster? Most shelters/rescues will pay the vet bills and many will supply food so all you need to do is offer a home and some lovin'!

The numbers in rescue are increasing drastically. This may be a reflection of the economic problems, or of other causes.

Sad to see the popular breeds mostly getting adopted. PWD, for eg.
I'm maxed. You KNOW I'm maxed:)
People never should have gotten that poor impulse puppy pet in the first place.

Poor puppies, now dogs that no-one cares to keep.

Raining dogs..

I know you're maxxed. So am I right now. Maybe someone out there reading this isn't? We can hope ...

Usually it is always the popular breeds that are adopted. Just the way it is. People like labels. I don't know why. I have found most people like to label everything (like a breed of dog ... it's not just a dog).
