    Rescue dog for Christmas? Maybe.

    On my way home from a job, I passed by the Villalobos Rescue Center in the upper 9th ward. Saw about a half dozen adults(with children), standing at the gate. I'm guessing they were there to adopt a dog for Christmas.


    I pass by there quite often; and have not seen this many folks there. I've always wanted to stop there to make a donation, but am usually too busy. I'll have to take time next trip to NOLA.

    Sad part is, Christmas is the worst time to bring a new pet into the house. Too much commotion for them to settle in easily. And a lot of the adoptions are not really fully thought out. As one who has worked around shelters for many years, I have seen a lot of the adoptions go out for Christmas, and be back by January 15, when they might have had a good home if adopted during the summer months.

    As most on this forum know, it takes time and training with any new being, be it human or critter, and holidays are too rushed, and then everyone is back at work and school, and dog is unruly, destroys things, or barks too much. Not the critter's fault, but it pays the price anyway.

    But, if you get the chance, you should stop in and see if one of the dogs there could find a forever home with you!!

    farmgirl19,
    I have no plans to adopt, at least not at this time. Just want to help in the way of a donation. Most pet adoption centers operate from donations received to subsidies expenses. Helps pays for food, medical supplies, etc.
    At present, we have a furry friend we adopted 4 years ago. I send the center a donation twice a year.
