This is Rosalie. A Ruff Start Rescue foster dog that was saved in 11/2011 :)
Every potential adopter must pass a Home Visit before an adoption. This helps us ensure the animal is the right fit for the new family as well as ensuring that our rescue animals are being placed into the best environment possible for their individual needs. Unfortunately, rescue animals are often passed around from shelter to shelter or sometimes worse and may come to us malnourished, neglected and sometimes abused. One of the most important things we can do for these animals is to triple check and be certain that we are not sending them into another situation that makes them uncomfortable. Home Visits are a quick and easy task but are one of the most important things we do as a rescue. You will meet tons of great people and fellow animal lovers and may make many new friends in the process.
