Dogs Arrived Safely

Post date: Sep 13, 2015 7:20:24 PM

We had our second all-black dog transport today. 7 dogs arrived, 5 of which have been adopted and 2 of which are in foster. One of these (male) fosters is Available now; the other, a female, needs to get some vet work done before she can be posted (it will be at least several days before this happens).

Since there tends to be a delay of several weeks in between asking for new dogs and getting them transported here, even if we requested extra dogs to be fostered and adopted later, quite often they're adopted before they ever get here; and if not, sometimes we already have people approved and interested in the remaining fosters as soon as they arrive. If you're interested in fostering or adopting, don't wait to see who gets posted--you may be waiting a long time. Apply on our Volunteer & Adoption Forms pages and our transport coordinator will work with the people providing dogs to find you one that works for your household--this usually comes down to your other pets (if you have cats, small dogs, or other small animals we will need to find a dog tested as 'cat friendly'), the type of personality that you like (lazy? active? friendly, outgoing? a little more reserved?), and sex (this is usually only a major consideration if you have another dog that won't tolerate dogs of a certain sex, although there are sometimes personality differences as well). Females, cat friendly, and non-black dogs tend to be popular among all adoption groups so of course there's more competition among groups for those. If you're in the market for a black male and don't need a small-animal friendly one (and many of these tend to be very people-friendly and outgoing) then you usually can have your pick of personalities.
