I have done home checks for rescues that are not
local and have not approved of all potential adopters. If a home check was
not done, animals could suffer. I have stories to tell!
I totally believe that fosters, as well as
rescues who have animals on site, must be home checked periodically.
Volunteers can be used for this. It's bad enough that most hoarders are
guilty of bad conditions, but to have fosters and rescues guilty of deplorable
conditions is unacceptable. Not having enough staff is just an
excuse. Volunteers can be found and trained on what to look for.
Please see the below.
Feel free to cross post. You might get
some home check volunteers this way.
This group is about getting active for animals. Our calendar is generally used to post when we are going out to leaflet, do an information table, or otherwise educate the public about animal cruelty issues and animal advocacy. We also post fun events there and events from other local animal groups.
You should join if you want to help animals and educate others so that they can make a difference too!
