Re: [dachshund-427] Rescue photo - cute! I think I sent the last one to an incorrect email addy.

I don't know....I wouldn't be so quick to judge terminology....without the adopters, rescuers can't continue to rescue.  When people adopt an animal, it makes room for another in the rescue or shelter.  So every adopter actually saves 2 animals!  The one they are opening their hearts and homes to, and the one that can be taken into the rescue because there is now room for another.  So in a sense, they are rescuing....
And anytime someone adopts instead of buys an animal, we are that much closer to putting puppy mills and backyard breeding out of business.  The less demand for animals through pet stores, Craig's List and newspaper ads because of people choosing to adopt (even if they want to call it rescuing!), the better!  
In my opinion, and it's just my opinion, I don't care if someone says they rescued their dog or adopted it, b/c either way it benefits rescues, shelters and animals in general!  :)

Agreed 100% many of us adopt but a select few of us actually rescue! Thank you to all of you that have opened your hearts and homes to all our less fortunate 4 legged friends!!

Very meaningful photo.

Switching gears and the opinion expressed herein does not reference this specific picture... it just got me thinking in general...

I think the term "rescued" is over used. To me, the act of rescuing a dog is the person who voluntarily uses their own time and money (sometimes donations) to take an animal out of a bad situation, care for it, and find a good, lifelong home. That's RESCUE. Those of us that get our pets from said rescuers ADOPT a pet.

I wish more emphasis was put on the difference between these two words and the common use of them.

Thanks Cheri for all you (and others like you) do for animals in need.
