|I get what you mean. I suppose I'm somewhat of two minds about it. On the one hand, if people are going to get their kids a pet for Christmas, better to get from a shelter/rescue than a BYB/pet store. On the other hand, I, too, thought that shelters/rescues often discouraged adopting during the holidays, both to avoid impulse decisions and because of all the hectic activity going on.
I suppose they figure if people want a dog for Christmas, better they consider and be allowed to adopt, rather then the shelter saying, 'No, come back after Christmas', since many people will just go somewhere else to get the dog.
