Some Rescue Dogs Are Already Trained for a Home
Even though living in a dog rescue isn’t ideal, most rescues (and some shelters) are assisting the dogs in more ways than just keeping it alive. Dogs can be socialized with other animals that help make them kinder and playful with all types of animals. Many rescue organizations use foster homes, where puppies and kittens for adoption are socialized with children and other dogs and cats, and given essential obedience training before they go to their new homes. This makes the transition to your home much easier for both pet and owner. Another positive aspect about dog adoption to point out, many dogs and cats in animal shelters and humane societies are already housebroken, trained and ready to go! Usually this is on behalf of the hard working shelter volunteers, and foster care givers, or it is because the dog has already lived in a home and has gotten to know the household rules like using the bathroom outside, or not jumping onto furniture.

Rescues Are Pros at Matching You With the Right Dog Adoption
Shelter workers are very careful to make sure their dog adoptions go well and their dogs end up in the best homes for dog and owner. Each organization has its own dog adoption application and screening process for potential adopters. Since pet rescues spend so much time with their dogs, they are able to match you up with the perfect companion for you. Volunteers also follow up with you after the adoption to make sure everything’s going well. They can help you get through any rough spots by offering dog training tips and lots of other advice. Adopting from a pet rescue group has another benefit: if, for some reason, things don’t work out with your new dog, most rescues will take the dog back, saving you a lot of trouble. Each rescue has its own dog adoption process for screening; this process is designed to make sure you end up with the right dog for your family. In an effort to help people make good choices when they chose dog adoption, many rescues even specialize in small dogs, some rescue only giant breeds. There are thousands of rescue groups devoted to a particular breed of dog or cat, too!
