    Heard back from the shelter today. They said at this point no rescue is wanting to take Gertie (good for me but cruddy for her because she is stuck at a shelter). She said she will let me know by Sunday if she finds a rescue to take her or if we get to come get her.
    I understand totally where they are coming from. A shelter's job is to get the dogs out to new homes/rescues as soon as possible so they can make more room for other animals. At the same time it's going to be a long rest of the week!

    I don't understand. Why would they prefer a rescue over a permanent placement?

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    Because I can't travel to Kansas to pick her up till Friday of next week. I think they want her on the route to a new home as soon as possible...hence the trying to get a rescue to pull her out before then. Sadly at a shelter it's gotta be all about the fastest turnover. Their website says they get something like 30-40 new animals everyday so I'm sure it's another shelter that is trying to accomadate tons of animals

    Has she even been spayed yet? If they get her pulled by a rescue they also don't have to do that first.

    Oh my gosh, late as always but dang you are a wonderful person for doing this! She looks so sweet, I want to see so much more of her when you get her. The spaying makes me anxious as well, naturally. Will be waiting to see how this all goes. Hugs to you for being such a great person and giving this girl the happiness she deserves after the life she has lived.

    When are they planning to have her spayed? I'm really hoping they make her an exemption seeing her age.
