Thank you for your response.Yeah, this time of year, the volunteer help evaporates as people tend to have holiday plans. That leaves a one or maybe two folks trying to do everything for everybody, and answering non-emergency emails asking for info just falls way down the list in priority. Everybody in rescue wishes they could do a better job! If it's been that long, I would send them a friendly email letting them know you're still interested and would love to talk with their adoption team -- sometimes that nudge gets noticed amid the pile of other stuff to do.
I also put an application at Echo to get the ball rolling there as well.
Meantime, I am also continuing with my conversation with a couple of breeders.
