Local Home Rescue
Just need an opinion and please no bashing my husband. I've been doing home rescue for a small local dog rescue for the past 4 years. Mostly strays and neglected animals. However, I am the only one that normally does cats and kittens. I go to events, help haul stuff with my husbands truck, spent numerous hours at fund raisers, home visits, helped give advise and it goes on and on. I was convinced to take in a 9 month old beagle that a new foster home could not deal with after a month. I was able to get her potty trained, learn some basic commands, walk nicely on a leash, crate trained, etc in 4 months. The perfect adopters took her for a 7 day trial and things went great, they wanted her really bad and just loved her. Then after only 9 days, they call wanting to give her back becuase the wife finds out she's pregnant. They are worried about the baby getting hurt. Mind you they have a 5 year old beagle also. I can not take her back, we normally do. I have foster cats I am taking care of, my own 2 cats, one dog of mine, work full time, going to school, helping a family member get on her feet (living with us), etc. I was told she would be at my house on temp basis and now realize there was no temp. The president convinced them to foster her for the time being, I just can not keep her again, my husband says there are enough animals dripping off of the walls here, it is just to much right now. What is it lately, you do all you can and then you get nagged at becuase you can not do more. The president of the rescue is upset with me, and I truly feel for the dog but I had to say no. Your opinions please.
