The following technique can be used to introduce a new kitten or cat to your other cat(s). The world wide web, however, does create the possibility for some people to advertise and publicize organizations that are not all that they seem to be. There are some pet adoption websites available which do not seem to be a shop window for a registered shelter, but more an agency that charges to find you a suitable pet to adopt.
There are numerous reasons why pets are being surrendered to shelters and rescue groups, most common reason is not thinking the decision through about getting a pet and then failing to the understand the responsibility that taking care of pets requires.
They should check your background and pet knowledge before you adopt, so be prepared to answer questions about the size of your home and yard, how many pets you own, how long you’ve owned pets, and other things that are relevant to the health and happiness of your new pet.
Everything is perfect and ready to go, the dog has an adopter in the bag, and then BAM – we’ve decided to wait,” or even better, we stopped by the shelter this weekend and took a puppy home.” OR, no communication at all – mysteriously radio silent on emails following weeks of conversation.
I can look at a thread for a shelter dog with forty-something comments, and not one single one will actually be offering to help – they’re all just crossposters tagging names and people saying, Oh my, look at that baby, what an angel, I wish I could help.” You’re just trying to make yourself feel better about not helping, and nobody needs to see that.
