    • Hello Nan. Of all the pets / furry family members we have had only Odie is not a rescue. They do come with fears and baggage. For a long time we rescued older animals that others wouldn’t take. We gave them the best last part of their lives we could and treasured them. Yes we missed the kitten / puppy stage, but the love these older ones gave was astonishing. Milo was the youngest rescue we did, he was only 2 according to the humane society ( the vet told us that he seemed to be older ) Yet from day one he was my constant companion. What humans do to other animals, the way we see them and treat them says a lot about what kind of animal we are. Hugs

      • My current little mutt (Mini-Schnauzer mix) is also a rescue. She was 2 years old when I got her and fortunately, didn’t have any bad habits. In fact, she’s very loving and welcomes ALL people. She’s 10 now and crippled due to a spinal injury about 5 years ago. But she’s happy! And she gets around amazingly well.

        Prior to her, I had a Rat Terrier mix. She was 5 YO when I got her and although she was a sweetheart, she was quite stubborn. Also, she loved to roam so I always had to keep her on a leash whenever we went out. As she aged, she developed dementia and arthritis. 🙁 It’s soooo hard to put down our beloved pets!!

        It’s extremely disturbing to think about what some humans do to animals. 😥

  2. It is very accurate, and many shelters give similar advice to pet adopters when they take their rescued pets home. I know we do where I volunteer, as do the other regional shelters in central KS. Some shelters have the wherewithal to allow rescuers to visit a few times before homegoing, and most allow “day trip” type visits for new forever families. That said, all shelters don’t, so this is a real public service. :’-)
