Writing4Fun - I don't think that you are missing anything - I also do not understand the call to arms. A home visit by a known Rescue with people who have been vetted is one thing - asking for "anyone" is not. I would not be comfortable going to someone's house under these circumstances. Hate to see a dog lose out on a good home but still think that top references from a vet who knows the family should suffice. Sure has for me and for others that I know.
