Has anyone had problems volunteering?

Has anyone ever had problems volunteering with a dog rescue? GSD or any other dog breed rescue...

The problem could have been with the dogs themselves or with the people who run the rescue, or other volunteers working with the rescue.

Let me hear your stories/rants! :-)

We look for a valid 501c3 rescue. They are accountable in terms of producing documentation. Do not accept a rescue's claim that they are "non-profit" . We made that error 1 time.

Actually, this isn't a place to bash rescues over their policies and how we perceive them.

There are bad individuals and groups, but peoples' tales of woe - instead of actually going out and finding a group they do mesh with, helping and promoting that - and just fishing for stories, isn't happening here. Sorry.

Thanks, smithie86 for trying to steer it to the general guidelines of what to look for before volunteering.
