Animal rescues most often need foster parents to take care of dogs and cats in their system so the pets don't have to live in shelters for an extended time.

Are you considering adopting a new cat or dog? Consider fostering first. Fostering saves lives, and it helps you see how well the pet fits into your family.

As a responsible pet parent, you should be taking them to the vet regularly for vaccinations and check-ups, says Stewart. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Elaine R. of St. Louis)

Bringing a new member into your family is a big commitment and life change, even when it’s a four-legged one. Consider these questions before you adopt a pet.

My family decided we wanted to adopt a dog. We were thinking we would like a border collie. So we started searching on the computer. We came across a border collie at
Tryon Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
. We called to see if the dog was available for adoption. They told us she was so the next day we took a ride to see her. When we arrived at the shelter we were sorry to hear that another family was interested in adopting the little border collie. The staff at the shelter encouraged us to take a look around, and maybe we would see another dog that we'd like to adopt. One of the girl's that worked there showed us a litter of puppies that were only 6 weeks old. Make a long story short we ended up taking one of the puppies home with us. That was 14 years ago! Going to the shelter that day was the best thing we ever did. That was the day Jade, the name she was given by the shelter, came into our lives, and the day

became a member of this family.
After 14 years of being a loyal friend and companion

has passed. We love her and we miss her. If we ever decide to adopt another puppy you can sure

Currently, I am the proud mom to 5 rabbits, many of whom came from the wonderful folks at
Tryon Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
. Located in Skokie,

has a passion for helping abandoned and abused rabbits and cats -- plus the occasional cat, duck or chicken, too. The staff is extremely knowledgable about bunnies and can advise adopters on routine care, vet referrals, behavioral tics, etc.

's dedication to animals doesn't stop at adoptions. They offer many other services as well, such as nail trims, grooming, educational seminars hosted by local vets, INCREDIBLY creative tri-monthly "Spa Di Da Day" photoshoots, bunny boarding, and "speed dating" to help lonely single bunnies find a compatible bunny friend. There is just so much love in this small shelter, and my husband and I are so happy to be a part of it.

A dog was with a ten year old girl a block away on its leash when it saw my 7 month old puppy. My chocolate lab was not aware as I watched the dog break free and head towards us. I tried to block its vicious thrust and it bit me. It then threw my dog on her back and bit ferociuously in and around her neck. This dog was new to the neighborhood and came from a rescue. The dog had its jaws locked and continued growling and biting. I got on the ground and tried to save my dog, as the dog bit us both!
Had it not been for a neighbor who fought to release the jaws(and he is one big guy), I would have been hurt badly and my dog would be dead. My dog suffered severe puncture wounds and I had several bites on my fingers and legs. We were a bloddy mess!
I was taken to the hospital as was my dog. Both of us were put on meds and have recovered physically. The trauma has been incredible and even my neighbors children who watched their dad save my dog are terrified as well am I.
I met with the owner who apologized and said she didn't realize it was 3/4 pit bull or as old as it was. She was glad that

rescue took it back for quarantine. However, last night she knocked on my door to apprise me of the fact that dogs name has been changed, that it is listed on the
Tryon Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
website for adoption and indicates nothing other than that it doesn't like dogs!!

I live in a crowded suburb but quiet. It has kids, dogs, cats and lots of opportunity for a wild dog to attack. The rescue should consider where these dogs are being sold and starting new homes! However, a vicious dog should not be online and ready to go anywhere. That dog is vicious!
One of my friends wrote to the rescue about my being attacked. They replied that the dog will not die over the human negligence shown.

My dog was on a leash, so they must mean the woman who owned the dog. Taking responsibility should be theirs as well.
Knowing that the dog attacked me and is in quaranteen and then writing up a paragraph omitting its history so they can adopt it again??
The police saw me afterwards and my dog and said they would have shot it. This dog set out to

Adoption??
This is not my opinion, but facts. My opinion about dogs and euthanasia are vastly different after three weeks of healing!

We were so pleased with the service. The men (2) who came to crate and transport our precious cats were kind, compassionate, and efficient, performing the service in about 24 hours. They drove almost straight through non-stop with our cats. They had no other animals except ours, so we felt the service was humane and individualized. Our cats didn't have to be kept in large trucks with a myriad of other barking and meowing animals. They were in the back of a smaller truck confined in comfortable crates which the company provided. Two cats (siblings) were place in a single crate to keep each other company. When they arrived at their new home, they were all in pretty good spirits and not traumatized as they would've been if they had to travel with dozens of other animals over a longer period of time with many stops and starts. We really enjoyed the individualized attention, care and concern the company demonstrated. The best part was that the price was so reasonable in comparison to all the other pet transport companies. We received individualized service at a high standard and yet at a minimum cost. It was great!

I applied to volunteer to assist at the

Riccoboni is in charge of the volunteers and she is so effervescent and approachable. She encouraged questions from the volunteers who attended the orientation and expertly fielded all of them. The volunteer program is laid back and volunteers make their own schedules. Because this is a no

dog they had posted online and fell in love. It has not been an easy road but it has all been worth it, they don't even make you pay for the animal they will tell you how much they have invested in them and let you pay what you can. Even offer training classes that they will pay for if you can't afford it just to get a dog into a great home. They do screen potential owners and make home visits, so they do all they can. Please use them, tell others, if you don't want a dog you can donate to help them.
