Little update for those interested

As an update, no one claimed the little guy. Turns out that I am allergic to dogs so we couldn't keep him. I cried but I dropped him off at a no kill shelter. (They charge you to drop animals with them, I had no idea but money well spent) Before he was even taken in while we were waiting for the parvo test to come back a woman was telling the vet that she wanted him and she would be back in 5 days (req hold time) for him. I was so happy that he would have a home. They let me give him his toys that we had got for him and promised that the new owner would be given the option to keep them. I was glad that he could have something for his time there. He is a very happy puppy.

That's great but just so you know....There is no such thing as  no kill shelters. Eventually, if an animal isn't adopted out or taken home, they WILL put them down. That's just how it rolls.

Sorry you couldn't keep him but glad he's still going to a furever home. Hope they screen the future adoptee well. I volunteer for a rescue group and we go as far ad doing home visits before we let our animals go. Then, the dog team even does follow up visits. We also require a few reliable references, hopefully one is a Vet.

Yes there is, I volunteer for one. We refer ourselves as a rescue group, but definitely a no kill group.

He's a cutie; I'm sure he'll find a home even if the lady doesn't work out.  It was extremely nice of you to make sure he had a safe place to go to as well.

I am not sure how their process is for adopting, but if it is anything like their drop off then I have hope for his future.

That is what they told me. They keep all the animals until they are adopted... they couldn't even take this little guy until they verified that they had the space for him. They had 2 slots open so we were lucky.
