|Interesting responses. The rescues and shelters I work with certainly do not operate with the assumption that rescue gets dibs. In fact, I tend to believe that gives rescue a bad name.
We get the calls on the unadoptable dogs, the dogs on the euth list either for behavioral issues, not showing well in the shelter, medical issues or the dogs that have just plain been there too long. In other words, we take the dogs nobody wants, the ones that were to be killed, we are often their last and best hope.
Ash was one of those dogs and many of my fosters have been those dogs too. The shelter can't risk adopting these dogs out, so we take them and assume responsibility both financially and medically.
