What are animal rescue places called?
- An animal shelter or pound is a place where stray, lost, abandoned or surrendered animals – mostly dogs and cats – are housed.
- While no-kill shelters exist, it is sometimes policy to euthanize animals that are not claimed quickly enough by a previous or new owner.
What’s the difference between a shelter and a rescue?
There are two major differences between shelters and rescue groups. Shelters are usually run and funded by local governments. Rescue groups are funded mainly by donations and most of the staff are volunteers. While some shelters place animals in foster homes, many are housed on-site in kennels.
Why is it better to adopt a pet?
Because you’ll save a life. The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them. When you adopt, you save a loving animal by making them part of your family and open up shelter space for another animal who might desperately need it.
Can you make a living rescuing animals?
One great way to get paid while helping to save animals is to work directly for the shelter. There are many paid positions at an animal shelter. Next time you visit, take a look around and see who is paid and who is a volunteer. You may be interested to find there are many paid positions available.
What happens to pets that don’t get adopted?
If your dog doesn’t get adopted within its 72 hours and the shelter is full, it will be destroyed. If the shelter isn’t full and your dog is good enough, and of a desirable enough breed, it may get a stay of execution, though not for long. Even the sweetest dogs will turn in this environment.
