These poor puppers. I wish i was in a position to adopt one. Hopefully they will all find new safe homes in MN.
I hope the AHS actually places them for adoption, rather than simply euthanizes them as they do so many other animals (14,000 last year)....these dogs deserve a second chance.
They really should lower the adoption fee for all or their pets.
Iâ€™m sure the price turns a lot of people away.
I hope all find a forever home.
Isn't it like $7 (I have no idea). However, as a dog owner, if you can't afford the initial fee (anything under $200 or so), you really can't afford to own the dog. I'm wondering how many other states got dogs. Are they spreading them out around the country to maximize chances for adoption? How many abandoned dogs were there?
I amuncetain of the costs now dys to adopt a dog from the humane society, but I adopted an excellent Black Male cat rescued after Hurricane Katrina from the Hastings animal Ark and the adoption fee was $125.00 which was wqell worth it for the care they gave him while under their care. If you cannot afford to adopt an animal rescued you can always donate money to the Humane Society's. I too pray that the rescued animals are not euthanized if not adopted.
The Hasting Animal Ark is a NO_KILL humane society where animals live until adopted or die of natural causes. Donations there are greatly appreciated
Does anybody know how much time was give for their owners to claim them? What happens if after the owner is back at their home, they decide they want their pet back? Can they get it?
You can bet a bunch will be killed. The "Humane" society kills more animals than anyone else--even hunters.
Why are the dogs coming here???
Hopefully AHS will not put down any of these rescued animals. Their records speaks for itself: if an animal exhibits any type of behavior problem, etc. it's - according to AHS - in the best interest to put the animal down. I think animals are worthy of some training and socialization before AHS goes to that extreme. They are the "popular" and well known animal organization in the area and they do the least amount of real care, training, socialization than the smaller, true animal organizations do. Just be cautious - these are living, breathing creatures - and they rely on human care and kindness for survival.
Adoption fee is around 250-400 bucks @ the Humane Society's depending on the dog or cat.
