April 2020

Sorry to say, the rescue is on hold at this time.  Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are not scheduling meet-and-greets or home visits for any of our adoptable dogs.  We are also not meeting with people for intake evaluations or bringing new dogs into our program at this time.  Most of our volunteer fosters live in and around Forsyth County and are under "Stay at Home" orders.  When it is safe to do so, we will resume normal activities and will happily schedule times for people to meet our adoptable dogs.

In the meantime, a couple of things to think about:

We know this seems like a great time to adopt due to many of us being home more.  If you are seeking to adopt or have recently adopted, please make sure you think through your plan for after-quarantine life.  When you resume "regular" life and work, will you still have time for your pet?  Are you training with them while you are home?  Are you prepping them by crating or leaving them in a different room for periods of time so that they don't form abnormal attachment issues?  This could later lead to separation issues when you aren't home as much.

If you do feel that this is the right time for you to adopt, check our your local county shelter or humane society.  These organizations are still overflowing with animals.  And they have a better space for industrial cleaning as well as social distancing policies in place to help people remain safe as they browse for new additions to their family.

Thanks for understanding, and stay safe everyone!
