A puppies rescue is just like a dog rescue except they typically focus on rescuing only a certain breed of puppy. They are similar to humane societies, but they usually have foster parents for their dogs and do not keep them in a shelter. These foster parents volunteer to take care of the puppies until a suitable home is found for them and they are adopted out. Many of these foster parents end up keeping a puppy or two if a home cannot be found for them.
Many puppies that are found by puppy rescues were abandoned and neglected. Some are taken in because the owner could not afford the puppies so they dumped them. Some people don
‘t understand how much work it takes to train and take care of a puppy so they abandon them. Some people abandon puppies who are not strong enough to fight or race. Some people move to places where puppies are not allowed so they abandon them. Some puppies are rescued because their owner was found to be abusive and neglectful.
Puppy rescues are a great place to find purebred puppies for a very low price. The rescues are far more concerned in finding them good homes than they are with making money. Almost all puppy rescues are non-profit organizations so the fees they charge are used for food, grooming and veterinary care. If you decide to get a puppy from a puppy rescue you can rest assured that it has a clean bill of health. They make sure that all puppies are in good health, spayed or neutered are are up to date on all necessary vaccinations. They also give them flea and tick treatments. Since these puppies are in foster homes, most of them are housebroken as well.
When you are searching for a puppy rescue make sure that it is reputable. Some people run these out of their homes just to make money. These types of puppy rescues will mostly likely not be too concerned with the puppies health. An easy way to check their credibility is to contact local animal shelters and ask them. Local humane societies and animal shelters will know which puppy rescues are true puppy rescues.
Once you decide on a breed it is time to head to your local puppy rescue. It is important to visit several puppy rescues because your perfect puppy may not be at the first one. Shop around a bit and be sure to ask any questions you may have about the breed and the puppy specifically.
When you adopt a puppy from a puppy shelter be sure that you can afford the time and money it takes to raise a puppy. You are rescuing a puppy that has been through a lot and they do not want to go through hard times again. When you rescue a puppy you are saving its life and who knows, it may save your life someday.
