I don't like PETA either, but the point is made - Check out sanctuaries before sending ANY animal there. Something too few people do. Beth Dont Litter, Fix Your Critter! www.Furkids.org   --- On Sat, 2/26/11, Kelley Saveika moonv...@gmail.com wrote: From: Kelley Saveika moonv...@gmail.com

What makes the $500/$1000 inadequate is that, from a rescue standpoint, older animals have to be fully vetted before they can be listed for adoption. That includes dental which is so expensive. Adopters are reluctant to take on older or special needs animals because they are afraid of the

Oh? Is this a nation-wide requirement or certain areas? And for senior animals only? I never heard that in my neck of the woods and have rescued and found homes for many dogs and several cats. Of course, they are usually younger and are always fully vetted before I take them out for Adoption

If you can find someone you trust beyond everything, give them the house to care for the critters. Supervision is the issue. And making sure they don't haul the cats to the pound and claim the house. On Feb 28, 2011, at 3:35 PM, katskat1 wrote: Some great ideas/questions! Thank you all

When I say senior I'm talking about cats in the 10-15 year age range and it seems they invariably need dental work when they come into rescue. We also always do full blood panels for anyone over 8 years of age. We don't want to risk adopting out a cat who is hyperthyroid or diabetic or in
