Why You Should Rescue a Dog?
There are many great reasons for adopting a rescue. Here are a couple!
1. When you adopt a rescue, you are giving a loving dog a new life.
Rescue dogs usually come from high-kill shelters, after having been abandoned by their families, or living as strays.
Rescuing a dog gives them the opportunity for a new, loving life with your family.
2. There is nothing quite like the love of a rescue dog.
Rescues are eager to find a family that fits. They long for the love and companionship that comes with adoption.
Because of this, there is a special kind of love and connection between adopters and their rescues.
They understand all too well what life is like without a loving family and warm bed, and so they appreciate it that much more when they have it.
This Weeks Rescue
This week's featured rescue, Farley, is from Fetch & Releash.
Fetch & Releash is a 100% volunteer-run dog rescue founded in 2016.
Their dogs come from a variety of different backgrounds, and their work involves partnerships with local and international shelters and pounds.
At Fetch & Releash, their mission is to rescue and re-home as many dogs as possible, regardless of their age, breed, background, health and/or behavioural issues.
Their goal is to find each of their rescued dogs the loving forever-home they deserve.
Meet Farley! Farley is a 9 year old gentle-dog of the highest order.
Farley loves his human friends, enjoys scratches at the base of his neck, and lives for sunning himself in the yard.
Farley knows his basic commands and can easily learn new tricks. While he enjoys his two 30 minute walks per day with the foster fam, he is fully house trained and is even able to roam his home freely while his parents are out.
Farley thrives best around older children (8+), as he can get a bit overwhelmed with the roughhousing of the young.
He would also do best in a home where he is the only pet, or at least dog - he can be choosy about his K9 friends and enjoys chasing smaller pets such as kittens.
