About an Urgent Rescue Situation

Hi All, My husband was sent an email from a coworker who's daughter fosters for MADACC. She's looking for someone to take a GS/Akita mix dog who's "time is running out". My husband says the dog is in the custody of "animal control" We're both willing to take the dog in either as a foster or for adoption. My husband is making phone calls to find out what we have to do. something just feels weird to me though. I don't know...

Just to clarify...nothing about the dog seems weird to me. I just am not familar with animal control or animal control and rescue communications. Like I said, my husband is making phone calls to get more info.

Some animal control only release to rescue guess you need to find that out otherwise you could get him.

That would kinda make sense in this case. Because the foster for the rescue said there is no room for him.

37 views and no advice? I don't blame ya. I don't even know what I need.

All I know is that I wanna save that dog. And I managed to raise a really good dog so I think I can do it again for this boy in need.

If they only release to rescues you can ask your husband to email the CO-Worker's daughter and see if she can have the rescue pull him for you? We pull dogs for people when we know they will foster them- especially foster-to-adopt situations. Usually time running out has a couple days of buffer... but the dog is downright gorgeous!

Thanks so much for the reply. I don't know if this facility only releases to rescues. I only know the rescue they generally release to is full and their advocates are reaching out. My husband is waiting for call backs.

I think my original question was....am I qualified? will it be ok for Mac? But I know the answers...I can make it work.

Cool . Getting a second dog usually does change the dynamic of a house (it did when I introduced my second dog) but it seemed to all work out in the end , and for the better. Hope things go well for you!
