Is her rescue legit?

January 30th, 2009, 01:16 AM
I found a woman in my area who claims she rescued 18 dogs who were about to be shot, some old, some young, and some pregnant. She has an add saying she can not afford to take care of all of them plus the puppies on the way. I set a time to go over and see if there was a dog for me to rescue, and also discuss fostering one of the pregnant ones. However, she did not answer any of my phone calls so I did not know how to find her. I then heard that the dogs are all her own, that she used for her own breeding purposes but now has no use for since the economy has gone down and people can't afford to be spending a fortune on puppies. How can I tell if her story is real, and if it isn't what should I do?

Contact other rescue groups and the SPCA to find out more information. The rescue world is small and everyone knows everyone.

Good luck.

I live in BC, I am in a small town and there are many kennels but not very many rescue's. None that i've heard of until hers, if it is real.
