Sometimes shelters and rescues are the problem

I'm single, live alone, and often have to leave my pets alone for 9-10 hours a day while I'm working. But I have a large fenced yard and am able to take my dogs with me to roam over the farm when I'm working at home.

Because of what I wrote above, I would be disqualified from some shelters and rescue groups. They often demand a stay at home 'parent' for the dogs and some freak out about dogs spending hours off leash chasing rabbits and mice.

The happy life I would give them doesn't matter, they would rather kill the puppies and kitten then see them go to less then a perfect home. Just read some of the quotes and writings from the head of the Humane society. They don't believe that animals should ever be pets. They believe that death is better for dogs and cats then to be debased by being someone's pet.

*FYI I'm never been denied a pet from a rescue group or humane society. If I really wanted one, I know how to lie. But I've read their rules and heard many horror stories from what others have faced.

Very true. we have two cats we adopted and a corgie dog we got at a pet store because my hubby really wanted one. It took him years to convince me to get a dog. I was so nervous about the responsability. I got two books first to read. We ended up getting the puppy and he is awesome. He's my first dog and I am totally in love. We thought about getting him a friend to play with and looked at shelters, but I worry about getting a dog that could have behavioural problems that could be passed on to our dog. Also, the shelters are strict because we don't have a yard we have been told they will not adopt one out to us. Same thing when we looked at some cats, I said I let my cats go outside and they said they would not adpot one to us. My cats like going outside and always come in at night and are never out if we will be gone for several hours...oh well.
