This is the beginning of a short series of articles on Rescue/Rehab/Training and the trends plaguing the industries today. Training has a unique perspective and role in the Rescue Pets industries and it's certainly different from the promotional and purposeful insight the public is provided.
In the following editions, some of the more unseemly things that happen will be illustrated and conveyed so the reader may proceed with more information and a heads up view of what to look out for when searching for a pet from Rescue. Much of it is unpleasant information that will make the reader's toes curl. Don't shoot the messenger. With this many years in this industry I have watched things degrade on so many levels it's been heartbreaking, especially as I deal with and witness the cases that come across my desk.
Rescue Rehab and Adoption have a very dark side the public never gets to see, unless or until they become a victim. This series is meant to alleviate that for readers who apply the knowledge in their search to provide a "forever" home for a Rescued animal.
Everyone's quality of life goes up through education and it's a heavy task to take on providing this information to the public in such a direct way. Bear with me and you will come out the other side wiser, perhaps more savvy and better prepared to find that special dog and keep him or her, forever!
