    Have you ever rescued from a shelter, pound, or rescue group?

    Have you ever rescued from a shelter, pound, or rescue group?


    Did you know: If the world was one shelter instead of broken up ones, 5,000 dogs are killed per second?

    Did you know only 40% of dogs in the world are adopted from the shelter?

    I don't like to use the word "rescue". She was never in danger of being put to sleep. Her foster mom would have kept her until her last breath. She was never in peril. I didn't rescue her- I adopted her I always put emphasis on "adopt" when people ask me that question.

    Roscoe and Katie are from shelters and Belle was a stray kitten. IMO rescue or adopted animals make some of the best pets - once they feel comfortable they become fiercly loyal. They can be a lot of work, but they have the biggest rewards

    I have adopted one kitty from the Humane Society. She wasnt in danger or anything, since our HS in a no kill one. But she had allergies and was sick a lot, but I loved her, so we adopted her. She was so sweet. We adopted her, because my old cat had disappeard and she had been gone for 2 months, so my mom desided I could get another cat. But, someone called and told us that they had our cat, that disappeard, 200 miles away so we went and got her, and we had to rehome the cat I adopted, so she is living with an older couple, with many other kitty friends

    Yes, my beloved Patches came from a rescue organization.

    But THEY rescued and I ADOPTED. Patches was a magnificent female calico kitty. She was already six months old so they were happy that I chose her over some of the cute kittens.

    Absolutely! All of my animals came as a rescue of some kind. All of my kitties were rescued from the street, and my dog Priya came from the animal shelter where I was volunteering. In fact, I was there the day she came in, and that night I just couldn't stop thinking about her, so the next day I went to the shelter and brought her home!

    Rescued pets make the best pets!

    **hugs**

    Both of my dogs are from a shelter. One of my cats I took off of the street and the other I got from a coworker that doesn't have a good track record with cats so I consider her 'rescued' also.

    Spot was rescued from a shleter in very sense of the word. He was literally on the table to be PTS, when the the girl with him started crying. The shelter manager gave her one more day to find him a home, and long story short, after a 500+ mile round trip, I brought him home and have never regretted it for a minute.
