All the policies of rescues are based on protection of the animal. Some rescues may be willing to ease up on some things if they feel you would be an excellent home.

For example, I have no fence but based on my references and past history, most of the rescues I contacted were willing to overlook that one point.

Many rescues of dogs AND cats are unwilling to adopt to students. You may be the best pet owner in the world, but students lives are so busy and in such transition that it's often felt that you may not be able to make a committment for the life of that animal. Since all these animals have already been abandoned once, rescues have to make sure (to the best of their ability) that it will never happen again.

I understand your frustration, but the animals' welfare must come first.
